A solo exhibition by the painter Bobbie Russon opens at bo.lee gallery

LONDON.- bo.lee gallery announces DELUGE - a solo exhibition by the painter Bobbie Russon.

Bobbie Russon’s paintings speak to the turbulent yet contemplative and solitary place in all of us. Just as gravity compels the tides, so the works exhibited in Deluge capture the outer forces provoking inner turmoils. Overwhelmed, figures stand subjected to the storm, desperately trying to keep their heads above water.

The comforts that the inhabitants of Russon’s paintings had been clinging onto have now been discarded, revealing a conflict between a sense of insecurity and independence. There is an allusion to the simultaneous desires for both parental presence and absence often experienced in the years approaching adulthood, and we wonder how momentary or deeply rooted the glares cast might be.

Painted during the winter months, Russon’s surroundings become metaphorical in this series and her previous symbols of hostility are replaced with something more vulnerable - a sense of defencelessness; of being washed away. The hopes and fears of the artists own family can be found and, in turn, those of society as a whole.’ Let me know if you disagree or have something else to suggest.

Russon's work speaks to us on an emotional level, a whisper rather than a cry, it gives us time to stand still, time to reflect on what it means to be human.

Russon was born in Birmingham and received her MA at the Royal College of Art and her BA at Central St Martin’s in London. She now works from her studio in South West London. Recent years have shown an increased interest and demand in Russon’s work, with sell out shows and inclusion in many private collections. Russon is solely represented by bo.lee gallery and in recent years her prices have increased dramatically with a growing collector base buying her work for investment.
