About the artist
Victoria Fuller is a multidisciplinary artist whose work focuses on systems of man and nature and the impact of that nexus, revealing the science behind it all. She plays with appropriated objects, assembled into sculptures and installations, which reflect natural forms, and she makes direct depictions of nature contrasted with human systems, relating to displays in natural history museums.
Based in Chicago, Fuller has an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In 2020 She was awarded the Dean Alan Olson Purchase Award at the Rockford Art Museum and she was awarded Best of Show at the 2021 Evanston and Vicinity Biennial. In 2019 she was awarded the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) Independent Artist Project Grant and an Illinois Arts Council CAAP Grant, in 2009. She also received fellowship awards from Illinois Arts Council and from the Colorado Council on the Arts and Humanities. She completed artist residencies at both Ragdale Foundation and at Sculpture Space. Her large-scale public sculpture “Shoe of Shoes” is in the collection of Caleres Shoes in St. Louis. Her sculptures have been commissioned by Sound Transit in Seattle, Comed in Chicago, and Arts in Transit in St, Louis. Her large-scale public sculpture, titled “Canoe Fan,” was purchased by the city of Ann Arbor and installed in Gallop Park. She has been featured in Sculpture Magazine, Bad at Sports, Hyperallergic, Scientific American Blog, Seattle Times, Chicago Tribune, and Western Art and Architecture Magazine.
