"Dandelions" is an installation representing the fleeting last stage of the flower before it turns to seed. At that stage, the iconic dandelion is a dream catcher, a villain, a rag tag reminder of negligence, a promise of a wish come true. Using metal and other familiar materials, Marney Fuller portrays the weed as a statuesque reminder of its resilience, akin to Brooklyn.
Marney Fuller is a painter and sculptor. In 2012, she had a one person show at 490 Atlantic Gallery in Brooklyn. She recently completed an outdoor installation called, "Tree Tapestry," on 100 feet of fence on Boston Road at the Morris High School Campus in the Bronx. From 2008 to 2011, she created large (10 feet) wire sculptures of a spider, web, caterpillar and butterfly that are attached to the side of PS 107, a 4-story elementary school in Brooklyn. Students participated in the execution of both public art installations. Marney received her MFA from Pratt and currently works in a studio in DUMBO. She is the owner/director of Art Workshop Experience (AWE) - a school for young artists located in DUMBO as well.
