Victoria Fuller’s sculpture explores nature from all angles – underground, above ground, outer space and inner space. In a new exhibition at Packer Schopf Gallery, Fuller offers a multilayer investigation of environmental systems. Aptly titled Nature², Fuller’s collection of sculptures alternately depict organic and manmade structures, illustrating both nature’s abundance and the dire consequences of human interference.
Nature² marks a departure in Fuller’s artwork. While prior sculpture re-appropriated common, manufactured objects to subtly reveal environmental motifs, the Nature² collection interprets the natural world via more literal construction. Direct depictions of organic elements – whether among earth and grass or human-implemented industrial piping – allow Fuller to investigate systems impacted by man’s activity in a widely-understandable manner. Though distinct, Fuller’s newer sculpture remains interconnected with her found object-based artwork. Each body of work informs the other, fully illuminating the universal experience of life on earth.
