Occupying Forms - Carla Scott Fullerton
Carla Scott Fullerton’s sculptural practice incorporates the raw materials of buildings - cement, glass and steel. Architecture and the built environment are a key influence on her work, from the ways different types of architecture can sit beside each other to its materials, forms, shapes and functions.
Viewing herself primarily as a sculptor and with a sculptural approach to printmaking, Scott Fullerton’s engagement with printmaking began with her incorporation of etched steel plates into her work. She then began printing with those etched plates, and this exhibition sees her further exploring the medium of print through digital printing, chine collé and screenprinting onto glass.
Within the gallery, the works will be placed to respond to each other as well as to the exhibition space. The title of the exhibition reflects this duality of the work within the space and the forms within the work.
