Postcards to the Pope by Todd Fuller at Brenda May Gallery in Sydney.There’s no place like Rome. 20 August to 7 September 2013.
Evening drinks with the Artist. Wednesday 21 August, 5:30-7:30pm
Awarded the 2013 William Fletcher Travelling Fellowship’s residency to the highly regarded British School at Rome, Todd Fuller has immersed himself in Roman art and culture, producing a body of work that expands his oeuvre into unconventional terrain.
He drafts a Pope as the protagonist of these new works, an unlikely muse for a contemporary artist. Investigating themes of power, expectation and burden, Fuller looks beyond the spiritual role of this influential figure via the animation of a compassionate, overwhelmed and lonesome man, not the higher power of typical representations. In these new hand-drawn films Fuller confronts his colour blindness by extending his palette beyond black, white and grey.
