J. RUSSELL WELLS "Model Break" 20x16" $2,240.
Art is not just something J. Russell does, he lives it. One cannot converse with him for long before the conversation has moved to some aspect of art and the creative process.
After graduation from the university with classes in printmaking, sculpture, drawing and painting; J. Russell was sought after by interior designers in Chicago to create custom pieces for their corporate and residential clients. “I am inspired by the beauty of the world around me and the human condition and seek to communicate my inspiration through the creative use of paint application and materials selection, mixing representational forms of art with contemporary ideas.”
“I take a workshop every year with an artist I admire who I believe can stretch me and teach me new ways to create, think and observe. Presently I am experimenting with creative ways of making marks using a variety of tools and using color and composition to better express the story or feeling I want the viewer to experience.”
