Angels Of A Lesser Known God

An exhibition of painting and prints by Russell Lilford - 3 March - 3 April 2020

The world at large has become a very polarized place, people's beliefs are forefront to their attitudes towards the planet. By using iconic myths such as Angels, I have attempted to paint a different light on the social language of myth. In the process of making this work my notions of the spiritual has been challenged, the mystical has unravelled to leave a singularity to which a visual iconic myth is secondary to a twisted metaphor. My ideas around truth are laid to waste by distorted realities and concepts of god. The creative process is the extension of my being, colour, pattern and rhythm announce the painted sound of my expression.
