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.
