Hamish Fulton came this way

‘Walking in Relation to Everything’ is the title of Hamish Fulton’s latest show, and I went to have a look with my walks for the Confluence project in mind. He came this way, north Devon that is, setting off on one of his coast-to-coast walks. I really love his work and was looking forward to his show. But when I got there…disappointment! The graphics on the walls seem almost superfluous: great typography, strong colours, and such conceptual rigour, but so many together just formed a jumble, and that is one thing you couldn’t possibly associate with Fulton. But somehow I have come away with a much clearer impression of the artist, and I like his assertion that mountaineers, rather than other artists, have been most influential on his work. Keep on walking! [Detail from one of his graphics]
