DESCRIPTION

Joseph A. Russo, M.D.  is exhibiting his exquisitely detailed dioramas depicting inner-city life, waterfront, and wilderness settings, which "give the spectator a strong sense of "pathos" or depth of mood" that is almost "haunting". He constructs these pieces out of driftwood and various natural materials he has found "just lying around" and details and weathers them. His sculptures appear "old, dank, and down-trodden" and give the viewer the feeling of "being in a strange, interesting, and miniature world." Dr. Russo wants to combine his experience and knowledge of clinical psychiatric practice with "transference" to canvas in a meaningful and powerful way.  "Transference Art" may just be the next art movement. Go to ForArtistsSake.com for further info and pictures.
