Russell West Exhibitions At Woolff Gallery London

This latest body of artwork from Russell West is a bold and striking collection of works all based around his highly unique dripped-paint process. West’s artwork is unrivalled in its style, the solid panes of colour representing walls, signage, apartment blocks, buildings, or favelas are all created using just paint in a technique which only West has mastered. The exhibition title ‘Wonderful World’ was inspired by West’s 6 year old daughter who continually experiences our world with fascination, joy and wonder.

“I use paint to produce solid planes of colour, to represent walls or signage. Once in place, the paint continues to move, dribbling serendipitously downward until it dries. It amuses me to think that at the end of every day, after locking up my studio for the night, my paintings continue to build themselves on their own in the dark in full colour, creating their desire lines.”
