The remarkable collages of Gary Russell return to the walls of Dalston Superstore, this time for his biggest solo show to date. With a cut and a paste of monochrome paper, these imaginative pieces of work will take you on a folktale journey, through the forbidden gate, down to the woods, into your dreams and beyond.
Whilst attending the Cambridge School Of Art, Russell experimented with printing and the manipulation of paper. After graduating his creative digits were put aside, until a few years later when he took sanction in the medium of collage. That seemed to click and has succeeded ever since.
“We Live In Our Dreams” is a collection of original and re-worked pieces exploring the combination of mysticism and established imagination. Using a variety of black and white paper, photocopies, photographs and torn older works, these pieces will give a dramatic contrast to the ever-colourful atmosphere of Dalston Superstore.
As well as exhibiting pieces as part of a group show at Dalston Superstore, Gary Russell has also participated in projects with Art Against Knives, The Ministry of Stories and Talent House. His work has been seen internationally in New York City, Bulgaria and Vienna, as well as featured in Aesthetica, Veux and U’Niq Magazine.
This will be the resident curator Saskia Wickins’ 20th exhibition and she is understandably thrilled to showcase a medium so close to her heart.
