Scalpel work by Georgia Russell
Scalpel work by Georgia Russell. Scottish artist Georgia Russell is well-versed in manipulating two-dimensional prints into highly textured images with the aid of a knife. Utilizing the sharp edge of a scalpel, her body of work adds a fleeting layer organic curves and scores that often move in a gesture similar to a feather or fur. Russell has been represented by England & Co since she graduated from the Royal College of Art, and her numerous solo and group exhibitions with the gallery have led to her work being acquired by The Victoria and Albert Museum and lent to exhibitions in museums in Europe, Canada and the USA, including the Museum of Art & Design, New York for Slash: Paper Under the Knife in 2009-10. Russell featured in the England & Co exhibitions Persistent Obsessions and The Map Is Not the Territory Revisited, and with the gallery at the Zoo Art Fair in 2009.
