Develop technical skills in digital animation, botanical drawing and fossil discovery at an animation and botanical illustration masterclass presented by the CORRIDOR project on Saturday 6 July from 9am-4pm in Wyangala. An initiative of the Orange Cowra Cabonne Science Hub under the tutelage of Todd Fuller and Angus Fisher, participants will create a Devonian Aquarium with reference to the region’s Age of Fishes fossil collection.
Todd Fuller graduated from Sydney’s National Art School in 2010 and is established as an influential artist, curator and educator.
Fuller’s practice integrates sculpture, animation, drawing, performance and painting to construct layered, multi-disciplinary narratives. He explores themes of the human condition, the body in motion and perceptions of queer identities.
Fuller has exhibited across Australia and internationally including the United States, Italy, France, South Korea, Bangladesh, England, Singapore and Malta. Fuller was awarded an honourable mention at the 15th Asian Art Biennale and was appointed the Art Fellow at Sydney Grammar School.
Angus Fisher’s art practice has always dealt with nature and humankind’s relationship with the natural world. Through the detailed study of history and natural subject matter, his work grapples with the idea of how nature exists, and has existed, in human imagination.
Fisher not only investigates ecology through his subjects, but the evolving attitudes and changing philosophical interpretations of the wider natural world. Primarily working with etching and drawing, he utilises traditional working techniques to place his work in direct connection to historical contexts and traditions.
Fisher’s work can be found in the collection of The National Gallery of Australia, the Art Gallery of NSW, the NSW State Library, the National Art School, Australian Galleries in Sydney and Melbourne as well as private collectors.
