2015, acrylic on canvas, 97 x 130 cm
For the Template series, begun in 2012, McCallum experiments with the dynamics of pouring paint onto either fluorescent white or flat spray-painted colour backgrounds. Paint is mixed to a specific colour and viscosity and poured onto the canvas which is left to lie flat until the paint has completely dried. The initial preparation is essential to the end result as it is the process itself which creates the final marks. Each work is hand crafted and impossible to replicate.
