The Heartthrob Artist Couple You Should Know Go by the Name Stallman

The artist couple Hallman and Stum, combined go by the name Stallman have caught my attention and tell me, “Shortly after meeting each other we began to explore what happens when creative minds collaborate. We have been working + innovating with canvas and paint for just over 3.5 years. This body of work has legs of it’s own  🙂 We are now represented in NYC, Chicago IL, Bellevue WA, Carmel By the Sea CA, Santa Barbara and San Fransisco CA. We live and work on Whidbey Island in Washington State, in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. The beauty of this place stimulates our creative minds and fills our hearts.”

Stallman Artist Statement:

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

Canvas on Edge body of work – 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. The cut edge of the canvas creates an elevated line drawing and when seen at an angle, fields of color emerge as your perspective to the piece changes. Each length of painted canvas is bonded to itself and 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.

“We create together, one acting as the right side of the brain and the other, the left. Our union of dynamic minds dissolves the boundaries of what is possible turning the ordinary into extraordinary. We are pioneering a visionary technique using paint and canvas as sculpture. We are taking this traditional medium, which artists have been using for hundreds of years and giving it a creative edge. Now the canvas has the leading role, creating form, highlight and movement.” – Stallman

Medium: Canvas and acrylic paint on framed panel
