Art Now: Michael Fullerton

painting of a man

Ranging from three-dimensional models of the rods and cones of the eye to large-scale screenprints and traditional portrait painting, Michael Fullerton's works appear to share little aesthetic common ground. However, all explore the processes involved in the recording and transmission of information.

His materials and methods often directly reference the tools and technologies of communication, such as newsprint or videotape, while his portraits have depicted social commentators such as the late John Peel. While associations are far-reaching, Fullerton's works collectively form an ongoing investigation into the relationship between subject, aesthetics and creative process.
