Based in Austin, Texas, Caitlin G. McCollom is an artist who is compelled to visually express the unknowable span of consciousness, and the beauty and wonder of encounters with the spiritual realm. Her use of water-resistant synthetic paper and high-flow acrylic, that ripples and puddles, results in an intentionally unique, three-dimensional piece.
Caitlin created a collection of 29 original paintings exclusively for Wonderwall Studio and left it up to us, the framing experts, to construct imaginative, one-of-a-kind art presentations in our design studio. Visitors can expect to see her signature use of red and blue, combined with the symbolism of the colliding physical and spiritual realms, but in all new shapes and forms.
“Spirit Room” will feature Caitlin’s original pieces displayed in unique acrylic frame options alongside prints on silver mylar, acrylic, wood and metal. The exhibition will be a beautiful juxtaposition between the original pieces and prints on unique substrates.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask the artist! Caitlin G. McCollom will be in attendance during the Opening Reception Thursday, October 4th 6-9pm.

Working with high-flow acrylic paint, polypropylene paper and a paintbrush, Caitlin visually expresses encounters with the unknown at the moment they are experienced. She uses shapes that include orbs, rectangles, teardrops and hearts to represent the moon and channels for understanding spirituality, windows into the spiritual realm, the experience of suffering or crying tears of joy, and the feelings of the heart, respectively, and vibrant colors to create modern icons that connect the visible and invisible world.
