Christopher Russell: Obelisks and One Perturbed Bird

Christopher Russell creates stone objects, like these inspired by European decorative arts, at Julie Saul Gallery at Pulse this past March. Objects like obelisks and flora in celadon create a neo-Baroque cornucopia. Altogether though, it creates a dinner setting where nobody gets to eat rather than the accouterments to a 17th c. feast somewhere in the Hapsburg empire. Which rather has me thinking how much fun it would be to decorate an Absurdist neo-Baroque environment in an authentically Baroque palace?
