About Russell Boyle

Russell is a Detroit outsider exalting the beauty and inevitable decay of youth in an increasingly violent society. With mixed mediums, oil and ink, Russell examines the struggle of identity. His work pushes through shame and excavates the surviving, sensual spirit that lies beneath the mortal facade.  

Motivated by the idea that the human body (and its psyche) is resilient as it is fragile, akin to the plastic shell of a vintage composition doll longing to be cherished for what it is yet discarded over time for what it can never become, Russell's work dives into the fear of the human condition and emerges to celebrate the power of resilience.
