Lina Russo

"My works are inspired by the sacred and the profane and by power and poverty for the moment."

Recycling of tree branches, plastic, and real money

"My artwork is made up of single, numbered and non-duplicable pieces. This particular method includes the demolition of molds so that each piece represents a unique masterpiece. These sculptures are the result of complex technical procedures. All my creations are very limited due to the extremely toxic resin I use.

I have worked in creations made with resin, newspapers, wood, plastics and carbon fiber. In 2005, I was awarded the prestigious Sculptor of the Year award by the International Academy of Rome.

Since I moved to NYC in 2013, I have been taking a break from sculpting due to not having a favorable space available. I have been concentrating on photography by taking courses at the ICP in NYC and painting especially oil on canvas."
