Ryan Russo's work first debuted at Charles Bank Gallery last summer's group exhibition Inglorious Materials. Russo's first solo exhibition with the gallery, Out of Context, has the artist playing with the word “media” in both literal and figurative ways. In this newest body of work, Russo's materials include fragments of news, advertising and other internet-accessible information. He uses both material and digital collage techniques to make works that re-process the massive amounts of information disseminated and ingested within contemporary society. In these new contexts, the media becomes raw, malleable material to build new visual structures within the framework of abstract painting.

Ryan Russo has a BFA from Boston University and an MFA from the University of Pennsylvania. He also studied at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica in Venice Italy. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
