Opens Saturday 12 August 3pm
As a figurative painter, Russell's work focuses on intense observation and application of the correct tonal values. He is interested in the quality of the paint, creating good composition and capturing mood and atmosphere - especially to capture a moment in time. Russell’s paintings are produced in the ‘open air’ or in his studio from drawings, sketches, small plein air work, and from memory and imagination.
Apart from working abroad in Italy, France, Australia, Bali, Fiji and Norfolk Islands he also derives immense satisfaction from working in his immediate environment.
We are thrilled to be showcasing a selection of pieces from his new and past catalogue in his exhibition.
