Canadian multi-disciplinary artist, educator and curator contemplates the idea of humanity as being alien, the "Other" from nature. Through paintings and sculptures, Fullerton also explores the concept of Axis Mundi--the point of connection between the mystical and mortality, a reconciliation of opposites suggesting a "pathway" to wisdom and truth. We would like to acknowledge funding support from the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the Government of Ontario. Curated by Logan Bales.
