Gerard Russo - Mark Maker/Copper Luminaire Maker

Gerard Russo specialises in creating illuminated works of art using copper. Made in contemporary forms using modern materials and techniques, Gerard’s process doesn’t end with his expressive mark making. He harnesses copper etching, woodwork and electronic practices to realise his works which are evocative with raw textural presence. Visit his studio and workshop where you will see how his works light up a space and further understand his deep appreciation for mark making along with how it is developed from an idea from charcoal on paper into copper and light.

Gerard and Elizabeth Gleeson share a studio space in their home. The property is fronted by a Creek and nestled privately yet very close to Monbulk’s main street. After meandering up the driveway of established trees, visitors to the studio will be greeted by an opportunity to see a pop up gallery, studio spaces and workshop.

From the Artist

I value subtly and explore its strength through my works. I aspire to depict individuals or settings that provoke an unspoken understanding in the viewer, one that they may immediately recognise and relate to, yet might struggle to describe. I believe that visual art serves as a valuable tool for emotive communication, a language that can't be written.
