Caitlin G McCollom

Contact

Caitlin G McCollom is a visual artist whose conceptual paintings are focused on notions of metaphysical searching. McCollom is compelled to visually express the unknowable span of consciousness and the beauty and wonder of encounters with the spiritual realm. While her vibrant paintings on plastic paper have many facets, she uses color and shape symbologies and explorations of archetypical imagery surrounded by formal whiteness to create modern icons that vibrate the connections between the visible and invisible world.

McCollom is an internationally exhibiting artist and she has been featured in national print and digital publications. Including Marie Claire, Vogue, Austin Woman Magazine, Glasstire, Tribeza, The Austin Chronicle, Persona Literary Journal and Les Femme Folles a catalog of women artists in the United States. Currently her work is held internationally with prominent private collectors and the corporate collections of Kendra Scott, The Hilton Worldwide, The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas, The Rabboni Institute, and Texas Tech University

McCollom graduated in 2010 from Texas State University with a Bachelor’s of Fine Art in studio art painting with a focus on art history. Previously she worked as an acclaimed curator for Red Space Gallery and on various independent projects, she was also a regional Texas art critic which now informs her full time studio practice.
