AMALIE RUSSELL

Amalie was born in Quebec City, Canada and studied Creative Arts in Montreal and went on to receive a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Ottawa.  Based in London, England for the past 7 years, Amalie’s paintings have held a strong focus on the interplay of architectural structures and natural landscapes.  Amalie has been producing commissioned work for collectors and private clients since 2006 and continues to do so.

Before moving to London, Amalie had exhibited solo and group exhibitions at Whippersnapper Gallery in 2007 and 2008 in Toronto.  In 2010, the AOE Arts Council awarded Amalie winner of the ‘Selections’ Juried Art Show prize at the Shenkman Arts Center in Ottawa, Canada.

Alongside solo exhibitions at the Hardy Tree Gallery in London, Amalie’s work was shown in March 2012 group show ‘The Turtle Salon’ to hold tribute for Micheal H Shamberg.  In the summer of 2012 Amalie’s ‘Walk a Way’ series was selected in the Islington Arts Factory group exhibition.  In 2013, her ‘Midnight Blues’ series was voted as one of the top ten exhibitions to see in London by art critic Tabish Khan.

After her most recent solo exhibition at the Hardy Tree Gallery in December 2014 titled ‘Four Measures’, Amalie’s work was selected in February 2015 to show in Venice, Italy at the International Art Expo ‘Liquid Room’ series.

Going forward, Amalie plans to explore the strong continuum of ancient infrastructures aligning with contemporary forms of architecture and how they naturally adapt to our environments, energy and physical space.
