Bio

Russ Warren was born in 1951. He grew up in Houston, Texas and began his training as an artist at the University of St. Thomas, Houston in 1969 under the tutelage of the painter Earl Staley. He received his BFA in 1973 from the University of New Mexico and his MFA in 1977 from the University of Texas in San Antonio. In the early 1970s Warren painted and exhibited in the Houston area and since then has had many important solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally, including the Whitney Biennial in 1981, the Venice Biennale in 1984 and the Corcoran and New Orleans biennials. Warren’s work is included in numerous museums and corporate collections and has been reviewed in art magazines and catalogues by critics such as Roberta Smith, Donald Kuspit, Barry Scwabsky and Carter Ratcliff. He exhibited with Phyllis Kind Gallery in New York and Chicago throughout the 1980s and continues to exhibit with Hodges Taylor in Charlotte and Les Yeux du Monde. Although Warren’s work has been characterized variously through the years as Neo-Expressionist, Magic Realist, Funky Figurative, and Mad-cap Surrealist, it always is his own mix of exaggerated and expressionist shadow, space, color, line, and iconic often humorous imagery. In this exhibition, The Disciple Warren pays homage to Pablo Picasso and Rufino Tamayo, two of his earliest artistic influences. He also chooses exclusively the vertical format for these paintings because, he explains it is “the same linear format and orientation as the viewer” and therefore is “more psychologically confrontational than the sublime and restful, peaceful nature of the horizontal as in ‘horizon’.”
