Ariana Page Russell creates images that explore the skin as a document of human experience, using her own hypersensitive flesh to illustrate the ways we expose, express, adorn and articulate ourselves.
Russell has exhibited internationally and currently resides in Brooklyn, New York. Recent shows include the Royal Hibernian Academy in Dublin, Platform Gallery in Seattle, Adelphi University in New York, and Museo de Arte Contemporáneo in Bolivia. Her work has appeared in Art in America, the Huffington Post, Wired, the Seattle Times, VISION Magazine: China, and the monograph ‘Dressing’ published by Decode Books. She was featured on ABC News 20/20 and was a recent participant in the Sexto Encuentro Mundial de Arte Corporal in Caracas, Venezuela. In 2014 her work will be shown at Town Hall Gallery in Victoria, Australia and in a solo exhibition at Magnan Metz in New York City. She received her MFA from the University of Washington, Seattle in 2005.
