Description
Ted Fullerton works in contemporary painting, printmaking and sculpture, and has achieved awards in all three media. Fullerton is an artist intrigued by dualisms - by the systems we use to define our human experience (and the lore we construct to make sense of it). His work weaves together a fascination with myth and pure physicality: he explores opposition, contrast and paradox, folding the delicate narratives of humanist inquiry into the incredible weight of his sculpted figures.

Biographical Information:

His significant sculpture commissions are for the City of Kitchener, and the Davenport Architectural Corp. He has exhibited across Canada as well as in the US, England, Australia, Spain and Yugoslavia. Fullerton's works are in private, corporate and public collections including the Burnaby Art Gallery, Burnaby, BC; Oregon State University, Oregon, USA; Ontario College of Art & Design, Toronto, ON; University of Waterloo, Waterloo, ON; and Markborough Properties, Halifax.
