Dealer Notes
Note: Calum Colvin has exhibited his work nationally and internationally for over thirty years since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1985. He is Professor of Fine Art Photography at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, University of Dundee. Colvin’s constructed photographic artworks begin as large-scale studio 'stage-sets', tableaux of everyday objects, furniture and bric-a-brac carefully posed and theatrically lit. Viewed from the fixed-point perspective of a large-format camera, painted trompe-l'oeil elements are introduced, integrating object and subject in a complex mise en scene. These are finally photographed on film, digitized and printed onto paper or canvas. For the image on this plate he again brings these disciplines together, utilizing the unique fixed-point perspective of the camera, in his unique style of 'constructed photography'.
His works are represented in numerous collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Museum of Fine Art, Houston; Art Institute of Chicago; The Tate Gallery and Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh.
