I can’t apologize enough.

27 May

“Artist David Fullarton was born in Scotland and currently resides in San Francisco. His experiences in both places inspired him to create a series of mixed media drawings which highlight a key difference in those cultures. “Although I’m British,” says Fullarton, “I’ve lived in the USA for the last 17 years, which means I come from a place where everyone constantly apologizes for everything, and I live in a place where no one ever apologizes for anything.” The series, which he has been working on for the past two years, depicts people apologizing for an array of reasons—some humorously benign while others are melancholic or even caustically indignant. His work is an exploration of the possibilities of the contextless phrase, and a provocation to think about the larger narrative in which the apologies were based in”.

All the pieces are graphite and mixed media on cardboard mounted on a wood panel and will feature in a solo show entitled ‘I Can’t Aplogize Enough’ at The Compound Gallery in Oakland, California, from May 4th – June 9th 2013.

They are for sale at The Compound Gallery Online Shop.

“South African artist based in Berlin, Germany. In 1998, he obtained a diploma in Fine Art from Technikon Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, followed by a postgraduate program at the South African School of Film, Television and Dramatic Art in Johannesburg. Working predominantly with everyday material like charcoal, chalk and paint, Rhode started out creating performances that are based on his own drawings of objects that he interacts with. He expanded and refined this practice into creating photography sequences and digital animations. These works are characterized by an interdisciplinary approach that brings aspects of performance, happening, drawing, film and photography together. Rhode often returns to his native South Africa, creating work in the streets of Johannesburg and continuously registering the traces of poverty and social inequality. An outstanding characteristic of his works is his addressing of social concerns in a playful and productive manner, incorporating these issues into his practice without simplifying or judging them”.
