Georgia Russell

Georgia Russell is a Scottish artist who established her reputation with works where she slashed, cut and dissected printed matter, and transformed books, music scores, maps, newspapers and photographs. Russell exhibited with England & Co for over a decade after she graduated from London's Royal College of Art. Her solo and group exhibitions with the gallery 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 lives and works in Paris, where one of her works was recently acquired by the Centre Georges Pompidou. These pages show selected works from her sold archive.
