Path and Inspiration Remi Russo is a British-born, Italian artist that visits isolated experiences and shares them through surface texture and organic form. He expresses the therapeutic nature of creating textures as a symbolic act of visibility, as he had to blend in from an early age. He looked to wariness, over-protection and isolation to be his methodologies to have survived school. He refers to his practice from growing up as an overlooked being to use clay as his canvas to prove his presence.
Process and Practice He leaves shape and form to his amorphous process of learning the uncertainties of life, and shares emotions subtly as a testimony for anyone affected by traumatic experiences that expression through texture can be an act of therapy. His neutral tone palette comes from a dormant aesthetic from his childhood, for diluting opinions on what beige meant to others. He indulges his environment in neutral tones & feels validated. He looks to landscapes, pillars and poetry for sources of inspiration.
