Informed and inspired by ideas of chaos and order, control and surrender, Russell Mills will exhibit new mixed media works and an ‘aleatoric’ soundwork, made specifically for Brantwood. Mills creates works that mirror and explore many of Ruskin’s ideas about nature: as matter, as force, as school, as metaphor for transformation, and as being profoundly political and economic.
Mills studied at Canterbury, Maidstone and the Royal College of Art. His work encompasses painting, installation, sound, film, and design for contemporary dance and music. He has worked with Brian Eno, Nine Inch Nails, David Sylvian and Peter Gabriel amongst many others.
