“Continuum” celebrates fifteen years of sculpture in cast glass and forged metal by Brian Russell

russell dixon exhibit 2013

On view in the Mallory and Wurtzburger galleries at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens in Memphis, Brian Russell’s new exhibition Continuum features several new outdoor sculptures throughout the gardens, and more intimately-scaled objects indoors. The indoor pieces feature streamlined cast glass forms resting in bronze bases similar to Punctuate 2 and Punctuate Dragon currently on view in our gallery. The outdoor sculpture dramatically displayed in the Dixon gardens, incorporate intricate cast glass elements and elongated curvilinear lines of metalwork. Russell has recently turned the focus of his metal work to aluminum. The Dixon describes the attraction of Russell’s sculpture as “the modern fluidity contrasts with the ancient techniques used to produce them, creating an active tension between glass and metal elements.” The exhibition will continue through January 12.
