Theo Mullen’s work articulates a conversation between object and image. Inspiration for his sculpture and photographs range from constructed rock formations to residential settings. The work explores contrasts between nature and urbanity in contemporary life. Mullen’s installations investigate the analogical relationship between photography and sculpture through various forms of image making. Upcoming, Theo will have a solo exhibition at Vox Populi in Philadelphia on March 2015.
