Richard Russell

Richard Russell belongs to a dying breed of traditional collage artists. I love collage regardless if it's digital or traditional. But I have to admit...there's a special place in my heart for traditional ways. His collages may be on paper, wood, stone, leather, or antique book covers. I'm particularly taken with his Encaustic Collage series, he uses various mixtures of beeswax and damar resin rather than glue. He does use modern collage techniques as well, and as you can imagine they are just as amazing!

Thanks so much for this! I wasn't familiar with this artist's work, but I'll certainly keep the site bookmarked from here on!
