A studio art professor at Saint Louis University, by way of Chicago, was commissioned to work on a new project creating a series of drawings based on Jenny Holzer’s Truisms. He was able to work with an assistant to research and produce the work. See more of Martin’s work at his website.
Fuller, a graduate of Washington University, works with installation and wall drawing to create environments in an effort to coax the viewer into the role of storyteller. Like empty sets, the environments function to provide a setting for a story that has yet to be elaborated. His desire is that each viewer infuse the visual narrative with his or her own experiences creating a unique interpretation that reflects the concerns and understanding specific to them. He used his commission opportunity to build a freestanding mechanical installation.
