Path and Inspiration
Remi Russo is an emerging ceramic artist based in London. His formal background in ceramics started in 2012, and recently graduated from Central Saint Martins. Since then, he has worked for fine art galleries pioneering in the creation of ceramic departments for emerging ceramic talents in the region. This eventually lead him to now spend time with his ceramic practice, which focuses on discovering the relationship of poetry and surface texture on sculptures in various neutral tones.
Process and Practice
At the core of his practice is exploring the embedded connection between emotional expression, and surface treatment. Promoting the consciousness of feeling present, my work raises the awareness and creative value to rely on our emotions. He's grown up being an empathetic person, so clay has been the mechanism needed to articulate his presence. Localised material, poetry & emotional bonds have been sources of inspiration, giving shape & form to the amorphous emotions, using clay as his canvas.
