Postcards from Home is a collaboration between artists and half sisters Sarah Fuller working in Co.Clare and Jessica Fuller, living and working in London. The project is motivated by a shared desire to make work through gift exchange and to communicate with each other in a more intimate and tactile way.
“We never knew each other when I was growing up, but after leaving home we started to write and built a long and lasting correspondence. These postcards are a continuation of our exchanges in a more visual way.”
Approximately 100 postcards are shown here, made using drawing, water colour, mixed media and collage. The images presented are drawn from the artists immediate environments and show routes to work or walks in the country, found objects from these locations and the stories associated with them.
Sarah Fuller graduated with a BA Hons in Textile Design at Central St Martins College of Art and Design, London and holds an MA in Visual Arts Practice from IADT, Dublin.
Her work has been exhibited at The Galway Arts Centre, Waterford Arts Centre, The Courthouse Gallery, Ennistymon, The Riverbank Arts Centre and The Glor, Ennis.
Much of her artistic career has been devoted to Dog and String Theatre, creating and performing visual theatre for children’s audiences that has toured nationally and internationally.
Jessica Fuller graduated with a first degree Honors BA in Sculpture at Wimbledon School of Art and has collaborated with Helen Sturgess ‘Lost’ Artstride, Southend on Sea.
