Enchanted Forest
Ann Russell
15th - 20th October

Ann Russell works with liminal spaces caught just outside 'real' existence, seen and simultaneously unseen. Her works are depictions of these spaces, often based on Surreal narratives using mixed media in a bricolage form; combining elements and symbols that retain some of their meaning from our world, juxtaposed with new meaning in the worlds Russell creates. Within the possibilities of these other worlds Russell aims to investigate transcendence, sacredness, memory, time and space. Russell tries to undo our understanding of the world and our existence in it as linear and rational; creating not just depictions of other worlds, but also ‘thinning the veil’ by creating portals through which the audience can move to these other places and dimensions.
