These are grim times. We live in a world filled with cruelty, indifference, and pointless suffering. And then, to make matters worse, we stumble upon an artist like David Fullarton who seems to find our atrocious situation amusing. Laughing in the face of our anxieties, mocking our foibles and poking fun at the absurdity of modern existence, this is an individual with no respect for the seriousness of our malaise. And whilst the title of this dubious collection appears to offer us an apology on his behalf, one is left with lingering doubts over the sincerity of his regret.

About the Author

David Fullarton
dfullarton San Francisco, California

David Fullarton is a Scottish born, San Francisco based artist. He keeps notebooks filled with scraps of paper, scribbled phrases, 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 davidfullarton.com
