Born in 1948, Russell Hollings grew up in Auckland. Largely a self-taught artist, Hollings was given invaluable guidance both from Ida Eise OBE and renowned English painter Edward Seago – with whom he stayed in close personal correspondence with until Seago’s death in 1974. Joining a local Papakura Art Group gave Russell the motivation needed to pursue an artistic career. From the late 1960s he began to hold solo shows within New Zealand; and by the 1990s was exhibiting internationally. Often drawing inspiration from his immediate environment, Russell has an outstanding ability to capture the same scene from varying viewpoints or in changing light, each time making it appear fresh and truthful.
“I work from observation and experience and draw and paint what inspires me and I hope to reveal and confirm that what I paint is of lasting importance. Translating a subject into paint is challenging, and often mysterious. I look for immediate response and begin to assess the composition and the tonal qualities and coming to terms with the colour. Light and shade being paramount. I work principally in oils and I paint on prepared boards , canvas boards and stretched canvas. I also work in gouache, watercolour, mixed media, acrylic and pastel, and use a variety of artists quality papers and mattboard. For studio work apart from still life I use my extensive range of sketchbooks which provide endless material and ideas” – Russell Hollings
