david fullarton, mixed media artist from ca.

david fullarton is a scottish born, san francisco based artist.
he keeps notebooks filled with scraps of paper,
scribbled phrases, and other ephemera that he incorporates into his artwork.
these elements represent the often overlooked stuff of daily life,
which is the root of fullarton’s inspiration.
he sees beauty in the ways people manage to find joy
and meaning in the minutiae.

he paints vibrantly complex canvases whose elements
jumble and mix together in a facsimile of modern life.
he compliments these with smaller mixed media drawings on paper.
these paper works are sometimes the genesis of the finished paintings,
but are more often stand-alone vignettes
featuring forlorn characters who find themselves in compromising situations.
