Somewhere in Between
Brenda May Gallery: November 13 - December 1, 2012
Todd Fuller's work tells a narrative. There is the male protagonist who appears as a sad and lost figure, sailing the sea with his red balloon for company. This image is portrayed through beautiful collages and sculptural pieces as well as a short film of animated drawings.

The miniature boat that sits in the centre of the gallery sees the male protagonist sitting in contemplation, his red balloon trailing behind him. This is the physical amalgamation of the collage pieces. The contrast of the red against the browns and blacks emphasises its importance and significance. What is this balloon to the man - his friend, his family or perhaps his sense of self. Fuller's work encapsulates a sense of uncertainty and a longing to fit in, to belong somewhere. Somewhere in Between is a gorgeous exhibition and Fuller continues to impress with his skill and meaningful narrative.
