Georgia Russell: Art created with a Scalpel

Scottish-born, Paris-based 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. What could easily be a superfluous effect offers instead additional emotions and narratives to the prints, fully responding to the movement of the image being captured. Some pieces include two individual prints that have been entangled within one another. A play of solids and voids as well as content and proportions, the wispy creations explore the notion of an unseen network of energetic motions while illustrating the transient quality of a single moment.
