About The Artwork

This work was inspired by my visits to the US over the last 5 years. The spirit of American to push on no matter what the obstacles. To have faith in the system even when it isn't working properly. To not blame and make excuses about why something bad happens but to take things on board and solve them. The general spirit of independence and good values. Obviously Jasper Johns flag is an inspiration and the paintings of independence of the French artist Monet and Manet who both painted red, white and blue flag of French Independence. I have combined the impressionist style of these hero artists of mine with the contemporary feel of American Abstract artists like Jasper Johns. I came up with the idea after visiting the Damien Hirst Veil Paintings exhibition at Gagosian Gallery. I began painting with dots and splashes and lines in 2008 when I contracted an auto immune disease which left me barely able to hold a brush. Let alone do the detailed painting I had in the past. This forced new freedom to think laterally about space and form has continued through my practice, even after I regained my technical abilities with the brush. Now I have the two styles Abstraction and Realism. This is a really beautiful painting and will be a great investment for any collector and lover of art.

My expressionistic style is concerned with the Human Condition and our relationship to the natural world. I studied painting, drawing and sculpture at Bath Academy, Norwich Life Room and Wimbledon School of Art where I developed my technical skills. But my late husband, Peter Fuller, was the inspiration for the development of a rounded interest in ideas and a passion for beauty and the importance of culture. My early childhood development by the sea in a remote part of Western Australia gave me a sense of the natural world and my place in it that would be impossible to know now. Most of my work revolves around eco awareness, bringing people back to nature and making them aware that we are animals and all connected. My creatures are people and the people are creatures. I have exhibited and been collected by museums and private collectors around the world for over three decades. In a strange turn of fate one of my large paintings was lost in the 2020 fires in Australia. I have also been fortunate to visit many artists’ studios over the years including members of the Bomberg School, Leon Kossoff and Roy Oxlade. The drawing skills and teachings of David Bomberg, and his idea of the "spirit in the mass" getting beyond appearances to the intuitive essence of a subject, has been a journey I am on and will continue to develop in my work. Recently returned permanently to the UK I have changed my artist surname back to Fuller. This is the surname most people in the UK know me by, rather than Burns, my maiden name. Climate Change - Pandemic - Life In Isolation Living through the pandemic has transformed my painting, probably forever. The White Cliffs of Dover Wildflowers The great tradition of landscape painting was mainly been the domain of men according to my late husband Peter Fuller, the British art philosopher and critic. Peter Fuller's life and work is the subject of a new screenplay this year titled Modern Art. I have spent the last 10 years attempting to prove Peter wrong. But I mainly stuck the the genre of seascapes. In this painting of a house and wildflowers on top of the White Cliffs of Dover I take you through my painting, during isolation, of a sublime landscape and the reasons I chose this scene as my subject. Having started my career as an artist talking about the death of my family in a car accident, making sculptures about mortality and nature morte.
