"My paintings are a place where adults engage in a world of childish innocents.
It’s about a perfect day, a place of eternal youth.
Everything is brightly animated, emotionally charged yet peaceful; it is art to find your inner child"
Artist Russell D’Alessio
"I begin painting from the abstract and find my way toward the figurative. The challenge is not so much where to begin, but where to finish. I like to work on several pieces at a time leaving the studio full of canvas and paper at various stages of development.
I suppose I do not consider a painting finished until the client comes and takes it away.
In the course of every day, I try and move on my own path of discovery, not to limit myself to one medium or genre. I do prefer my work to be spontaneous expressionist and allegorical. Beyond that who knows where each journey will lead."
