Masterclass Series 2023
with todd fuller
Sat 22 July 2023
10am – 3pm
Join Award winning artist Todd Fuller for an intensive Drawing Masterclass. This session is for emerging and professional artists with experience in the drawing medium.
After a tour of Fuller’s work in ‘Floating Land’, this workshop will offer artists a series of drawing exercises intended to solve problems and overcome challenges in the studio. Throughout the day, artists will develop a new toolkit for extending their drawing practice while reflecting on the capability of the medium.
Inspiration will be drawn from the surrounding natural environment, and still-life arrangements utilising natural and man-made objects, along with subject matter relevant to each participant’s own interest and artistic practice.
About the Artist
With a practice that integrates sculpture, moving image, performance, and painting, Sydney-based artist Todd Fuller is, at his core, a draughtsman. Underpinning all aspects of his practice is a love of drawing and a belief in its power as a democratic medium to connect, engage and delight audiences.
For ten years, Fuller has been crafting hand-drawn animations that grapple with love and loss, as well as ideas of place, identity, and community. Often narrative in form, these award-winning works are derived from Fuller’s experiences with different communities, sites, and histories. He has been awarded a number of residencies that have informed and developed his practice, including time spent at Bundanon Trust, Hill End, Grafton Regional Art Gallery, as well as international stints at the Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris, the British School of Rome, and recently the NG Creative Residency in Provence.
A graduate of Sydney’s National Art School, Fuller has exhibited widely across Australia over the last ten years. He was a finalist in the 2019 Sulman Prize, won the prestigious Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award in 2018, and his work is present in various public and private Australian collections, including the Parliament House Art Collection, Artbank, Sydney Harbour Trust, and numerous regional art galleries. Alongside his national success, Fuller has gained international attention, with his works in exhibitions in the United States, Italy, France, South Korea, Bangladesh, England, Singapore, and Malta.
