Sculpture:

Inspired by what nature teaches, multi-media artist Joseph Russo challenges the observer to draw his own conclusion about what is real and what is imagined in a world of natural beauty and hand crafted elegance.

Russo creates mind-bogglingly visceral dioramas with exquisite detail, beautifully fashioning miniature structures while depicting inner-city life, waterfront and wilderness settings, which gives the enthusiast a strong sense of pathos and depth of mood that is haunting and unforgettable. His work is a creation of intricate worlds sculpted in 1:43 scale and smaller. The pieces are constructed of drift wood and various other natural materials and weathered using acrylic paints.

His sculptures give the bystander the feeling of being in a miniature wonderland. The small scale draws the viewer in, the all seeing eye, allowing for the intimacy one might feel peering into an antique dollhouse. The works distort reality through a dreamlike lens where chaos, hazards and longing lurk just beneath the delicate landscapes, harkening transformational experiences and quieter moments that resonate throughout our lives.

Russo is self taught, making the transition to a full-time artist while maintaining his private practice as a psychiatrist. His work stirs the senses, suspending time itself, distilling the human experience down to single, fragile moment. His works wait to be discovered.
