McCallum’s Shadows is an abstract exploration of light and texture, evoking the distinctive interplay of sunlight filtering through Spanish moss in the Southern landscape. McCallum, a trailblazer who challenged the norms of her time, infused her art with the same spirit of independence and determination that characterized her life. Shadows stands as a symbol of her journey, showcasing her development from early influences to a mature style characterized by an abstract, interpretive vision. This linocut invites us to see beyond the conventional—almost as if you are peering through a microscope—to appreciate the beauty and complexity of the natural world as filtered through McCallum’s innovative artistic lens.
