Irene Russo

Italian artist

Irene Russo nasce ad Avellino il 17/04/1985 e si laureata in Pittura all’ Accademia di Belle Arti di Napoli. La pittura d’Irene risente degli influssi nord-europei dovuti agli studi artistici in Polonia, presso l’ Uniwersytet Artystyczny w Poznaniu. Successivamente si è specializzata in grafica pubblicitaria ed editoriale all’ Ilas di Napoli. Attualmente lavora tra Avellino, Napoli, Milano e Londra.

    Irene Russo, 1985, was graduated in Decoration and Painting at Academy of fine Art In Naples. Her painting was influenced from study in Poland, at Uniwersytet Artystyczny w Poznaniu. She is living in Mercogliano, in the south Italy, and work between Avellino, Naples, Milan and London.

I started my research in 2010 and is spread today with a reflection that concerns the temporal and biographical component, about feminist, social aspects and on the experimental study of painting techniques. I’ m also fascinated by everyday objects and the transience of objects, especially about ephemeral charm of flowers, natural colors and nature. My artistic work is born from the need for exploratory in minimalist color and my research was influenced by artists such as Burri, Hirst, Kiefer,Fontana, Rothko, Turner and Friedrich and also from my study in Poland. My current research is on "PLACES", about landscape, as a reflection of human emotions, in which loneliness, anguish and anger create supernatural landscapes that reflect the human spirit in which the colors take on and reflect the emotion and the feeling of the artist and in which the viewer can get lost and find yourself.
