Allan McCullum, Born 1944, Los Angeles, Lives and works in New York

McCollum began making his Perfect Vehicles series in 1985, representing an iconic sculptural form in order to investigate the ways in which a single object can contain cultural meaning.

All of the Perfect Vehicle sculptures bear the same shape—that of a Chinese ginger jar, a traditional vessel that has been extensively copied and reproduced for centuries. Each sculpture is thickly painted in a different hue of commercially available paint and has no opening, utterly eliminating the typical use that one might expect of a vase.
