When The Canvas Is The Painting

By -

Jason Hallman and Steven Stum have been working under the name Stallman, creating mesmerising landscapes in billowing folds of coloured canvas.

Rather than applying paint to the canvas in the conventional manner, the image is made out of a flurry of folded edges housed inside a boxframe, the cut edges of canvas making whirling lines while disappearing into depth, blurring the boundary between painting and sculpture. It is a real team effort, the pair working together to produce work that transforms a familiar material into something new.
