About

Colorful Faux Naive Style Cityscape Painting, Portrait of the Artist 'Self Portrait' painted by Darshan Russell in 1997 Oil on canvas, 21.5 x 24 inches framed with thin wood stripping Signed lower left Wire backing, ready to hang as is This contemporary abstracted naive style cityscape painting was made by Poughkeepsie, NY based artist Darshan Russell. Here the artist uses an explosive color palette to paint a self portrait in an urban setting. The artist's portrait is accompanied by other figures, with undefined facial features. The dominant colors of the painting come from the orange of the artist's sweater and the dusty blue of the sky. The figurative painting is framed with thin, natural wood stripping. There is wire backing for quick 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.
