Georgia Russell

Etudes sur l'hystérie 2009
Cut and painted book in bell jar 29.5 x 12.5 inches
"Georgia Russell slashes, cuts and dissects printed matter, which she then manipulates and re-constructs into extravagant, ornamental, sculptural paper-works. The decorative qualities and inherent potential of her found ephemera are fully exploited as she transforms books, music scores, prints, newspapers, maps or photographs – sometimes with flamboyant colour and wild cutting, or with discreet play on the subject or title of her printed matter. Her works hover between object and image."
Georgia Russell is exhibiting at England & Co, 216, Westbourne Grove, London W11 until 27th June.
