David Fullarton is a Scottish born, San Francisco based visual artist specializing in works that combine images with text. He keeps notebooks filled with scribbled phrases, scraps of paper 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. The artist paints vibrantly complex canvases whose elements jumble and mix together in a facsimile of modern life. Fullarton 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. More examples of his work can be found at and at The Compound Gallery in Oakland, CA.
