JORGE RUSSINKE

From Here to There
March 8 - March 29, 2016
Reception: Thursday March 10, 2016 6-8 PM

Jorge Russinke’s work evokes both the playful wonder of childhood and the serious expertise of contemporary painting. Russinke paints with oil, occasionally adding a mixed media element. His pieces are masterfully composed, with careful consideration to line and tonal balance as each work shows a close-up of a kaleidoscopic pattern that whirls with energy. Russinke forgoes the potential confusion of such a design by zooming in for the detail, with just a hint of repetition. His colors are warm and smooth, and his geometry is perfectly executed. 

Russinke’s technique ensures that the paintings remain relatable despite entering some unfamiliar and fairly abstract territory. He includes representative images in his patterns – a body, a plant, or an everyday object – while maintaining the graphic integrity of the pattern. His work asks the audience to consider line and color as things that move and have direction. 

Russinke was born in Colombia and today splits his time between Orlando, Florida and Cali, Colombia. He has exhibited in both Colombia and the United States, as well as in Ecuador.
