New Works by Russell D’Alessio

A Walk Into Spring 2

Russell describes the means to the end of the pieces, “I begin with a drawing, most of the time a woman then overlaid on a background of textures that contain bits of photographs I have taken along the way on our travels.  I then add layers of paint, sometimes also adding  silver leaf, gold leaf, copper leaf, or india ink, sometime a spray of silver glitter and sometimes an additional layer of gold leaf to be-jewel. To several of the works I have added bits of inspiration from the painter Gustav Klimt but each painting itself is composed of many layers.”
