Art That Pervades Dimensional Boundaries
Stephen Stum and Jason Hallman aren’t your typical artists.
This duo, based in the Pacific Northwest, combine painting and sculpture in a unique way, using color, texture, and depth to create visually stunning works of art that will have your brain struggling to understand just what it is you’re seeing.
The artists, who are a couple in real life, find their inspiration in biology and the natural world and use classic mediums like canvas and paint in new and unique ways to create one-of-a-kind projects. Stallman Studio–named for their two last names–showcases what they call “Canvas on Edge,” a collection of canvas sculpture that use form and color to represent movement.
This is done through the meticulous process of cutting canvas to different lengths and then incorporating them into swirls and similar patterns. The strips get bonded together and their edges are painted in varying colors, ultimately giving the effect of a spectrum that changes as the viewer moves and catches new perspectives.
These two artists create 3D art that you won’t be able to wrap your head around. Beautiful.
