Stallman Studio

Stallman is pioneering a new technique using paint and canvas as sculpture, naming this body of work Canvas on Edge. They are taking canvas and paint and giving it a creative edge. Now the canvas has the leading role, creating form, highlight, and movement.

Hallman and Stum, a Pacific-Northwest-based artist duo, merge talent and vision to create multifaceted sculptures. They work in tandem on each piece they create, finding inspiration from patterns in cellular biology and gradients in the natural world. The duo merged their names Stum and Hallman to form Stallman. Creating together, one acts as the right side of the brain and the other left. This union dissolves the boundaries of what is possible, turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Canvas on Edge- Stallman is pioneering a new technique using paint and canvas as sculpture, naming this body of work Canvas on Edge. The cut edge of the canvas creates an elevated line drawing. When seen at an angle, fields of color emerge as your perspective of the piece changes. Each length of painted canvas bonds to the background creating a rigid structure within the frame. The hue of the painted canvas reflects on the background, creating a spectrum of color. By using reflecting light, pigment, and structure they can multiply the hues and tones within each sculpture. Each piece is sealed with an archival varnish that protects it from moisture and UV light.

Stallman shows in private collections and fine art galleries all over the United States.
