Paintings by Wendy Smith.
Paintings and prints by Eleanor Taylor.
Russell’s Still Life paintings are very distinct. Like poems or short stories the pictures are peopled with a cast of familiar characters such as jugs, bottles, boxes, pots and sometimes images of women in photographs taped to a wall.
This exhibition includes some of Russell’s Playmobil series. These are precise and carefully plotted still life compositions of a rather ridiculous subject; little scenes made up of plastic Cowboys and Indians.
Russell spent eight years in art education culminating in a Post Graduate Diploma at the Royal Academy School. Russell has been commissioned by the National Trust and sold his paintings through Agnews in Old Bond St, London. He has exhibited at Royal Academy Summer Exhibitions and had regular one man exhibitions in London at the Curwen Gallery (2004, 2006, 2008), Abbott and Holder (2009, 2013) and locally at Lucy Bell Fine Art (2014).
Russell works in Hastings where he has painted for the past nineteen years.
