Multi-disciplinary artist and sculptor Roberta Fulford works with a variety of materials and techniques, making large, site-specific installations, paintings & sculptures in materials such as cast bronze, laser-cut steel, woods and 3D printed resin, as well as serendipitous finds from the environment including decommissioned oil rig and castaway 'ghost' nets collected directly from her surrounding environment. Roberta completed an Art degree at Northumbria University, which led to a career as a furniture and architectural interior designer. She moved to Shetland in 2013 to focus on her artistic work from her island studio, surrounded by the large skies and wilderness that inspire and inform her work. She now splits her time between Shetland, Edinburgh and Northumberland in order to build a collaborative network and explore diverse environments. She has had several successful solo exhibitions, created site-specific works for venues such as 9B9 Gallery in New York and large-scale installations in Newcastle Cathedral and Blanchland Abbey, and had features & cover in publications such as Artmag. . Immersed in the landscape’s drama & beauty, Roberta creates works to express her sense of the universal and enduring relevance of nature, considering issues such as habitat loss and humanity's relationship with our environment throughout history as well as our relationships with ourselves and each other. Works sometimes focus upon matters of gender bias & isolation but also as a whole there is an over-arching expression of positivity and the joy to be found all around us.
