Adie Russell appropriates found imagery, using it as a background to experiments in abstraction. Exploring themes around the representational vs the abstract, direct perceptual experience vs the imaged world, landscape vs portrait, she generates tension between these opposing forces and creates an aesthetic of the in-between, where human emotion and alternate realities can be expressed.
