Nathaniel Russell: HERE IT IS IT ALWAYS IS

February 3, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - March 19, 2023 @ 6:00 pm

For “HERE IT IS IT ALWAYS IS,” Russell shares new paintings, objects, and situations made improvisationally with recycled, found and reused materials. A visual artist, illustrator, and musician based in Indianapolis who has shown his work around the world, Russell utilized the Efroymson Gallery at Tube Factory during the month of January to build his work for this exhibition. With “HERE IT IS IT ALWAYS IS,” Russell continues to explore themes of hope, anxiety, compassion and our place in an ever-expanding universe.
Nathaniel Russell was born and raised in Indiana. After college, he spent several years in the San Francisco Bay Area making posters, record covers, and woodcuts. His work can be seen around the world in traditional galleries and informal spaces. Russell has also created many book and album cover designs, illustrations for the New York Times, and a viral series of fake flier projects.
Two of Russell’s murals are found on Big Car’s campus — You are Here on the Listen Hear building and Totally Pencil on Tube Factory. Russell also previously made colorful, oversized plywood cutouts for Big Car’s parking lot garden at Service Center outside of Lafayette Square Mall and shared a solo show, Thing, at Big Car Gallery in its early days in Fountain Square.
