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 in cellular biology 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 - 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. Each piece is sealed with an archival varnish that protects it from moisture and UV light.
