The Temple Gallery is pleased to announce our first exhibition of 2008, featuring the work of Payson, Arizona photographer, William Fuller in William Fuller: Photographs. Fuller's modernist sensibility is highlighted in this exhibition of his spare, abstract, black and white photographs of contemporary American architecture. An opening reception will be held on Friday, January 18th, 5:30 – 7:30pm.

Although his subject is the city, Fuller is not an architectural photographer. He is interested neither in documenting the buildings nor using the city as a backdrop for other ideas.  Instead, he has carved a unique niche for himself. Fuller, who lives in a remote area of central Arizona, believes there is a, “common bond between the solitude and vast space of the Arizona wilds and the quiet beauty and expanse … of the city.” He sees canyons and peaks in urban architecture, just as he does the Arizona landscape. In short, he is a modernist.  He sees the ubiquitous office building and banal condominium as pure, abstract form, rendering them beautiful and even edgy in our eyes. Towers of glass and steel become spiritual forms set against a pristine sky in Fuller’s contemplative and precise photographs.

William Fuller is available for interviews upon request.  Please contact Etherton Gallery (which manages the Temple Gallery) at 520-624-7370 or email us at info@ethertongallery.com to schedule an interview or for more information about the artist or his work.

William Fuller

Born in Cleveland, OH in 1948, William W. Fuller grew up in Waukegan, IL and Pittsburgh, PA. He earned his B.A. from Penn State in English and Speech in 1970, where he was also introduced to photography in a course taught by Henry Wessel. He has exhibited at galleries around the country, most recently at the Ellis Crane Gallery in Durango, CO.  Fuller’s work was featured in Arizona Photographers (1990), published by the Center for Creative Photography, and most recently, in the journal LensWork (2006), which chose Renaissance Center, Detroit, Michigan (1996) for its cover.  Fuller’s work is included in the permanent collections of The Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona in Tucson; the Santa Barbara Museum of Art; and the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. This is his first exhibition at the Temple Gallery.
