About The Artwork

We are drowning ourselves and all the creatures of the world with our creations, our trinkets, our waste and the excesses of our lifestyle. I recently donated a work called “Break Free From Plastic” to a conservation organization called Drains To the Oceans, which is an organization that helps to clean our beaches and oceans of our pervasive trash. It was constructed of trash and recycled objects, the very objects that are clogging our seas and killing our wildlife. “Plastic Free Mermaid” is yet another reminder of our need to be aware of our impact on the world that surrounds us, a world we share with all living things. #beakindhumanbeing #bekindtoyourmotherearth

My work is a reflection of my life as it is affected by events, both personal and global. Sometimes it mirrors the joy that life has brought me, or it may be a shadow of the angst that sometimes shrouds our everyday lives. Whatever the inspiration, each work evolves in its own unique way, whether starting as a field of color, a grid of plaster or a shield of images and found objects. The journey to completion is a metamorphosis,sometimes slow, sometimes quickly, until the final image of the thought or emotion I am endeavoring to communicate reveals itself to me." As my art envelops me and images rise, I am drawn in by textures and emotions; memories both beautiful and haunting. New images ascend from my subconscious, declaring themselves upon the canvas as I begin to fade away. Moving to Los Angeles and leaving everything in my life in New York I was lost and lonely in my life. I was searching for forgiveness, but realized I had to forgive myself first. Empathy began to be the medium in my painting. I developed a relationship with my newfound transparent friends. We both felt invisible. As I began to immerge, invisible images and monsters began to emerge. Mati Russo
