Opening tonight – Thursday, April 21st, 2022 at Arcadia Contemporary in New York City is artist Alex Russell Flint’s exceptional solo exhibition, “Solitaire.”
Alex Russell Flint is a British artist specializing in beautifully crafted, yet distinctly unsettling, representational works.
Russell Flint’s timeless images of strong, alluring females, placed in intriguing situations or simply posed portraits strike a pleasing balance between classical portraiture and contemporary cinema. And while his subjects may be pleasant to look at, they are often found in situations that, most decidedly, are not. It is also very important to be aware that these damsels are not “victims,” but rather “instigators” in whatever cinematic situations Russel Flint puts them in.
Russell Flint is the great-grandson of the Scottish artist and illustrator, Sir William Russell Flint and has participated in numerous solo, joint, and group exhibitions in London, Ireland, and the United States. In addition, the painter has received countless commissions including numerous for British Royalty and his artwork has been used for the front cover of author Donna Tartt’s ‘Secret History.’ His French home and studio has also been featured in various interior design publications including Condé Nast’s ‘World of Interiors’ and Annie Sloan’s ‘Recipes for Style and Color’.
