About Russell Gilder
There are no upcoming events
I have been a practicing artist for more than 20 years,my passion for painting has only grown stronger over this period. Always challenging but also rewarding, the process of painting can be limitless in its diversity. I have been painting from one particular landscape area in South Shropshire Since art school in Shrewsbury and then Birmingham. Mortimer Woods is situated just outside the small market town of Ludlow, This area is the main source of reference for my art practice. The landscape of this area has great historical significance, visually dramatic topography and has amazing light. Although I do not live in this area any more, the memory of this place lives with me, this has reflected in the gradual change in my work from one of representation to a more ethereal interpretation of this landscape.
