About Kory Russell

My process, whether I am painting directly from nature or from a world my mind has created, leaves me changed nearly each time I finish a piece.  I start, nearly always, with some particular idea in mind; this piece will be a tree, this piece will be a landscape, this piece will be a butcher.

Whatever it is, there is a definite, simple idea that starts the process.  However, as I warm up and get more involved in the piece it takes on new philosophical depths.  I often find in myself more unrest than I believed was there originally.  I tend to sympathize with a world I don't understand and gain greater clarity of it, while losing some of myself along the way.
