Caitlin G. McCollom is an artist living and working in Austin, TX. She graduated in 2010 from Texas State University with a Bachelor’s of Fine Art in studio art.
A painter and performance artist, her minimal iconic paintings in red ink parallel her works in performance and body-art. Her work challenges notions of the self and gender identity specifically relating to the body.
McCollom has shown in galleries all over Austin, most notably Women and Their Work, Arthouse’s Ahead of Their Time, and known well for her performance based solo exhibitions at Co-Lab: New Media Project Space. She is also involved in art criticism and wrote critical reviews for the Women and Their Work Gallery blog: Sister Space.
In addition to her work as an artist, McCollom works as director and curator of Red Space Gallery, a non-traditional gallery with a focus on emerging artists and experimental methods. She is working into the second “cycle” of exhibitions with new artists representing some of the best young talent in Austin and Texas. She works to promote a discourse within Austin on new media and non-commercial art forms through her own work and the work of the exhibiting artists at Red Space Gallery.
