ABOUT THE ARTIST
Todd Fuller has exhibited annually with the MAY SPACE since 2011 at the age of 23, having graduated from Sydney’s National Art School the previous year. He has been awarded many residencies that have informed and developed his work, more recently including Bundanon Trust (2018), Hill End (2017) and Grafton Regional Art Gallery (2016). The hand-drawn animation developed during his Grafton residency, 'Ode to Clarence', won the notable Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award in 2018. Most recently, Todd was a finalist in the 2019 Sulman Prize at the Art Gallery of NSW for his hand-drawn animation, 'With whom I was united by every tie (Captain Moonlite)'.
Fuller’s practice is multidisciplinary and multifaceted. His video artworks have portrayed narratives concerned with burden, freedom and iconography. Fuller’s practice also includes the drawing stills from his films and sculptures that bring the characters he develops into a three-dimensional form. Fuller’s pieces have entered many important collections, including Parliament House Art Collection; Artbank; Newcastle Art Gallery; Bathurst Regional Art Gallery; Grafton Regional Gallery; Maitland Regional Art Gallery; Gympie Regional Gallery; Deakin University Art Gallery; the ELLIOTT EYES COLLECTION and Sydney Harbour Trust Collection.
