Calum Colvin is one of Scotland’s most innovative photographers, and his photographs are complex constructions. They are composed of three-dimensional stage-sets, populated by everyday household objects, and overpainted with subjects that relate to fine art and to popular culture; as well as to global history, identity, and ecology. Looking at these artworks will involve the viewer in a kind of puzzle, for these photographs need to be interpreted. When explored the photographs reveal a world that is comical and serious, joyous and profound, imaginative and original. Calum Colvin’s photographs, then, allow us to recognise the wonder in contemporary life, and to share in the pleasure of a wild creative journey.
