Born and raised in in rural Oklahoma, Benjy Russell is a 34 year-old artist currently based out of Dowelltown, Tennessee. His multi-disciplinary work seeks to uncover truths and partial truths of human nature through imagined realities, fictional portraiture, and alleged artifacts. His work concentrates mainly on the porous boundaries between fiction and reality, using a hybrid of genres and techniques to disorienting effect. His imagery and sculpture are a study and an exploration of either side of the line that exists between sanity and a more interesting reality.

Russell utilizes photography, sculpture, and collage to weave a story of hidden truths, lost identities, and elegant dysfunction that balances just on the other side of sanity. Peering through the thin veil of reality, these images and objects are future ruins of a soon-to-be new mythology. new mythology.
