HungryMan Gallery San Francisco presents, Future Findings, a solo exhibition of paintings by Vancouver based artist Russell Leng. Through this body of work Leng employs the materiality of paint to create isolated extractions of an imagined landscape. These glimpses into future environments aim to confront the viewer’s perception, as well as their understanding of landscape from within the painting tradition. Leng questions how the unceasing amalgamation between the constructed and natural change how we identify with our environments while realizing ourselves within.
Russell Leng is an emerging artist living in Vancouver. He holds a B.A. in Art from Trinity Western University, and has exhibited throughout British Columbia and the United States. He has most recently shown at Catalog Gallery and Crying Room Mural Projects, both in Vancouver, Parts Gallery in Toronto, and Gallery Hijinks in San Francisco. He has been featured in numerous group shows, as well as online and print publications. Russell will be begin pursuing his MFA in the United Kingdom come Fall 2012.
