When creating her collage works, JK Russ utilizes a traditional hand-assembled cut-and-paste technique to reflect and subvert contemporary ideals of female agency and sexuality. In a similar fashion to the European Dada artists of the early twentieth century, Russ has adopted the medium of collage as a political tool to re-contextualise found imagery. Her female subjects have been described as "strong, sexy and alien" in scenes combining erotic imagery, desert terrain and pop culture. This is Russ' first solo exhibition with PAULNACHE Gallery.

Exhibition opens: 6pm Thursday 1 May 2014
Exhibition closes: 24 May 2014
