RUSSELL CHRISTIAN moved to the US in the early 1980s after completing his Fine Art studies in Bristol, UK.
He draws obsessively motivated by the hope and a need to trip on something revelatory and surprising. The process involves getting out of his own way, subverting presumed actions, contrivance, habits and facility, to stumble on something unpredictable and compelling. This bloody minded approach yields piles of incomplete artworks and orphaned graphics, that get revisited, re-mined and whittled down. The beaten up survivors that emerge, thrilled to see the light of day, get shared.
