Robert E Fuller is a chronicler of wildlife, and specifically of the wildlife in his native UK. He works from his studio in North Yorkshire. More recently his travels have broadened the range of animal subjects to include wildlife from Finland, the Antarctic Peninsular, India and Kenya. I stumbled across his work in a gallery shop in Bath, UK and have been looking at his painting of a Badger on my wall ever since.
There is something truly engaging in the visual rendering, or articulation, of living things by a human hand. There is something of a quality of love and the desire for understanding that is unique to such a medium. So often images of wildlife appear in photography, and it is wonderful to find artist who are still working to render these studies by hand.
