The Flea Circus is hosting an exhibition by Byker-based artist Russ Coleman.
Russ uses the skills and practices he learned as a Monumental Mason and letter carver combined with his experience in the construction industry to create works that celebrate the world around us. After ten years of craft and graft, Russ studied Fine art in Kingston upon Hull in the early 1990s and has created public artworks all over the UK.
His latest works extend a long tradition of British sculpture combining humanity and landscape. Russ’ return to stone as an expressive medium has produced a set of works that are as rich as they are simple. They are a quiet contemplation of geological time and the brevity of life.
Russ sells his artwork, letters made of stone, steel and concrete at Flea Circus
