Eccentric and Alive, Pipe Cleaner Sculptures Free the Imagination
By Erin Goodwin-Guerrero
Once again, Ted Fullwood lives up to his wonderful capacity to amaze and delight. Although I have only seen his work in an occasional group show in recent years, he is never far from my mind. Among original and creative people in Silicon Valley, Ted Fullwood is always right at the top of my list.
Fullwood’s Energy Machines filled the Cardinale Project Room at San Jose ICA.
Fullwood’s fans have been waiting for this new body of work to appear and were not disappointed the evening of February 5, when Energy Machines were unveiled at the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art. Many gallery visitors reported that the crowd surrounding the work made it impossible to see the installation and they were resigned to come back on another day to get a glimpse of the works sporting such titles as Oxcavator, Dialator, Rejuvenator, Reciprocator and Yellow Retort.
