Matt Mullican is an American conceptual artist whose diverse output can best be described as an attempt to order and categorize the World at large. He has worked in a number of media, including painting, sculpture, textiles, drawing, animation, electronics and even hypnosis and performance. Mullican has developed a color code system for identifying the five main aspects of the world. These color symbols are combined with the varying media (such as oilstick rubbings on canvas) to create a dynamic and voluminous visual structure.
