”This recent body of work is informed by my continuing research into the physical and metaphorical nature of archaeological artefacts and votive objects, allied to the referencing of the symbolic forms and materiality of alchemy. Central to this practical investigation has been the use of ‘gold’, and the qualities that the material, with its obvious chromatic and symbolic values, seems to possess. This has driven both the conceptual and pragmatic concerns within the evolution of this work. Gold is an alluring and complex symbol of many, often conflicting meanings, avarice, greed, wealth but also of purity and celebration, and has been used as the adornment of spiritual and religious iconography as a devotional act for millennia.”

1961 Hampshire, United Kingdom

Russell Frampton, painter and musician, was born in 1961 in Hampshire. He was educated at Portsmouth and at Exeter Art Colleges (BA), later taking his MA in fine Art at the University of Plymouth and is now living in Devon where he has a studio. He also spends time at a workspace in West Brittany. Both locations, as elemental as they are, provide the basis for many of his works, as well as trips to Scotland. He has exhibited widely in the South West and in London, including the major London art fairs and has work in private collections in Europe, Japan and the USA. His landscape-based abstract paintings are concerned with layering and texture to produce almost archaeological substrata appearing quarried from the raw materials of the landscape itself. He uses collage and small obsessively detailed areas of drawing to build up surfaces that have both formal compositional elements and take advantage of chance occurrences in the painterly process.
