Darshan Russell
Looking Down: Modern, Naive Style Cityscape of Park Bench and Gray Sky

1999

$550

About

Oil on canvas 18.5 x 18.5 inches in brown wood frame This modern, abstracted naive style oil painting was made by Poughkeepsie, NY based artist Darshan Russell. Here the artist used bold colors of red, green, gray, and mustard yellow to compose the quiet city park with a bench and bare, spindly trees. The quiet scene is painted in rounded abstracted forms while traditional perspective is abandoned in favor of a more playful caricature of the park. The colorful cityscape is complimented by a dark brown wood frame, with a wire fastened to the back for install hanging. About the artist and her work: Hudson Valley artist Darshan Russell is a self-taught artist and has been exhibiting her work in many locations about the region. The colors and feeling of her compositions are greatly influenced by Matisse, but Russell’s inspiration comes directly from life and the simple scenes that surround her in Poughkeepsie, Kingston, Hudson and other Hudson River towns where she paints. Occasionally, Ms. Russell will paint cities that she has traveled to like New York, Baltimore, Portland and Paris, but the bulk of her work documents local scenes and local people. The photographs accompanying articles in the Poughkeepsie Journal or the New York Times inspire much of her figurative work. Portraits of Madelaine Albright and Mayor Dinkins are part of her repertoire as well the less notorious individuals. Ms. Russell’s paintings have a unique look that can be contributed to her practice of daily painting and years of dedication to develop a style all her own. She is as interested in landscapes as figures and city scenes. Her work has become well collected with the increased appreciation in folk art and naïve work.
