Fuller's Beijing follows hundreds of miles of purposeful wandering to depict China's cultural capital.
The artist was based in Tongzhou District, in the east of the city. His monogram 'GJF' marks the studio where the artwork was drawn.
" To determine the scale of Beijing, I decided to first circumnavigate the city by foot. At the edge of the work, you'll see footsteps showing my route and linking memories that became a cognitive border on the map. The drawings are formed predominantly by personal observations and geography, and are bound together by the experiences and shared stories of Beijingers. We forever live through technological and political change. In this work, I question and celebrate the adoption of new ideas and systems that shape urban life. It's another investigation into the sense of place and my obsession with this phenomena. " Fuller
