David Fullarton balances striking figurative drawing with humorous and conceptual text work, with recent work that leans wholly in either direction. His recent plates, in particular, show his knack for the deceptively simple. Fullarton was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
David Fullarton, simply, makes “pictures with words on them.” Yet, despite that simple tagline adorning his site, examination of his mixed-media works yields much more than that. His figurative drawings not only reflect something deeply human; they also carry as much of weight of the humor in each work as the text. Fullarton can something that’s at once desperate, hilarious, pitiful, and somehow joyful.
