About the Artist

Born in London, Fulton studied at St Martinís School of Art and the Royal College of Art. While studying he made several visits to the USA, becoming interested in presenting landscape as sculpture through photography. He does not leave any mark or intervention on the land; the communicative power comes from the resonant texts that accompany his work. The text gives selective details of place, time and distance, some including more subjective details of Fultonís state of mind. He describes his work as passive protest against urban societies that alienate people from the world of nature.
