David Fullarton’s Apology Tour

Friday, February 1st, 2013

By Justin Ray

Artist David Fullarton was born in Scotland and currently resides in San Francisco. His experiences in both places inspired him to create a series of mixed media artistic drawings inspired a key difference in cultures. "Although I’m British," says Fullarton, "I’ve lived in the USA for the last 16 years, which means I come from a place where everyone constantly apologizes for everything, and I live in a place where no one ever apologizes for anything." The ongoing series depicts people apologizing for an array of reasons—some humorously benign while others are pretty abrasive. His work is an exploration of the possibilities of the contextless phrases, and a provocation to think about the larger narrative in which the apologies were based in.
