WINTER 2023 EXHIBITION: Opening on Saturday 25 November and runs until 28 January 2024

Richard Otford Russell

Richard Russell was born in Alvechurch, Worcestershire. He excelled in art at School, but his career took a different path.  He continued to paint and attended classes so as to cultivate his talent in landscape painting. He is now a professional painter and a full-time artist. His works are exhibited around the West Midlands. 

ARTIST STATEMENT:  "This recent series of paintings were created at an extraordinary time in world events when I had time to get out and enjoy the exceptional Spring weather. I revisited the places I had discovered in my youth. Fladbury and Pershore lie in close proximity to each other along the River Avon. I remember kayaking on this stretch of the river. It was utterly idyllic. Shimmering water bathed in sunshine with Swallows and Dragonflies darting around us".
