Darshan Russell
Still Life 2: Modern, Naive Style Still Life Oil Painting of Fruit & Figurine

2019

$350

About

Naive style still life painting of fruit and a figurine on a maroon background Oil on canvas 9 x 12 inches unframed Signed lower left This modern, abstracted naive style still life painting was made by Poughkeepsie, NY based artist Darshan Russell. Here the artist used a limited but high contrast palette of maroon, canary yellow, green, and orange to create this eccentric still life of fruits with a toy figurine. Applied straight from the tube, paint is applied liberally with some impasto built upon the surface. 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.
