Russell’s Still Life paintings are very distinct. Like poems or short stories the pictures are peopled with a cast of familiar characters, the contents of his studio, jugs, bottles, boxes, pots and sometimes images of women in photographs taped to a wall. ‘Shelf Life’ includes some of Russell’s Playmobil series. These are precise and carefully plotted still life compositions of a rather ridiculous subject; little scenes made up of plastic Cowboys and Indians.
