Pencil on paper

This auction is raising proceeds for The Hepatitis C Trust
Russell's work uses history, place and identity as touchstones to navigate work in various forms and to produce bodies of work that reference these concerns. In the last few years, he has been exploring portraiture through drawings of faces made in cardboard, using pencil on paper as medium.
Exeter University, Drama
Russell's work has been selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize, The ING Discerning Eye, The Wells Art Contemporary and The Derwent Art Prize. He is a member of the Society of Graphic Fine Art. His works have been exhibited internationally and are in many private collections throughout the world.
