Allan McCollum’s More Visible Markers in Twelve Exciting Colors take the shape of hundreds of multi-colored circular tablets measuring 4” in diameter by 1 3/4” high. Each tablet is cast in hydrocal and painted in one of twelve colors: Storm Cloud Grey, Lemon Shine, Linen Sand, Tangy Orange, California Lilac, Stuart Gold, Light Khaki, Red Tulip, Springtime Bloom, Baby Boy Blue, Clearest Ocean Blue, and Fresh Scent Green. Each bears a deep imprint of the word “Thanks”. Visible Markers lend physical form to a common verbal gesture. With this project, perhaps more than with any other, the artist explores his notion of the art object as something that obtains it’s significance through the process of its exchange, rather than merely through its making and its presentation. He hopes that by giving “Thanks” people will appreciate Visible Markers as both an object and an action. Allan McCollum work has been featured in the Museum of Modern Art, at the White House and in Paris at the Pompidou Center.
