Undergraduate Fine Arts and Design

Theo Mullen


Relying primarily on fragments and remnants, Theo Mullen looks for archetypal forms and common construction material to assemble small and large impermanent sculptures and installations. While advocating the photographs persistent roll as document that holds time, Mullen wants to direct the gaze to the contracted histories of architecture and structure. Originally from New Orleans, Louisiana, Mullen received a BFA from the University of Colorado Denver and went on to receive an MFA from the University of Pennsylvania in 2014. Exhibitions include Ruffin Gallery at the University of Virginia, Vox Populi and Fjord Gallery in Philadelphia, Lawndale Art Center in Houston, Franz Joseph Kai in Austria. Mullen currently lives and works in Philadelphia.
