In January 2012, marks and lines grew across the walls of Back to Back Galleries, Cooks Hill. The marks scratched and erased, changed, morphed and grew and as they did a narrative formed. During the process a story of impermanence, of struggle and loss resulted. Throughout the one week period, visual artist Todd Fuller responded to the music of Bathurst based artist Abby Smith. The resulting film 'One and Only' is a visual interpretation of a song by the same name. It brings together a real and imagined world. The woman who occupies it endures a whimsical battle with her own detached heart. At the end of the one week intensive process, the work was washed away and all that remained was an empty white wall.
Smith and Fuller agree that it is in the spaces between their individual practices, that the most unexpected and wonderful moments are allowed to occur.
Special thanks to Back to Back Galleries, Cooks Hill.
