Every location has its own history, culture and community inherently marked by human experience. Fuller reflects upon a notion of place which is forged through industrialisation and our dependence on raw materials. His work explores the complex layers of our society and infrastructure, in order to critique and understand the context in which we live.
His experience in landscape and within industrial settings has created a strong sense of place in his practice, to fuel his fascination of abstraction, construction and disruption of form. Using clay and other materials as a vehicle, he expresses his perceptions of landscape and the ambiguous relationship between humans and the natural environment. He manifests his thoughts and concerns through processes of construction and the physicality of making.
