Georgia Russell: Fantastic Book Artist
Georgia Russell is a Scottish artist who slashes, cuts and dissects printed matter, transforming books, music scores, maps, newspapers and photographs. Russell has been represented by England & Co since she graduated from the Royal College of Art, and her numerous solo and group exhibitions with the gallery have led to her work being acquired by The Victoria and Albert Museum and lent to exhibitions in museums in Europe, Canada and the USA, including the Museum of Art & Design, New York for Slash: Paper Under the Knife in 2009-10. Russell featured in the England & Co exhibitions Persistent Obsessions and The Map Is Not the Territory Revisited, and with the gallery at the Zoo Art Fair in 2009. Georgia Russell: Cutting Through Time was her fifth solo exhibition with England & Co. Russell has also exhibited recently in Paris, where one of her works was acquired by the Centre Georges Pompidou.
