In this newest body of work, Russo’s materials include fragments of news, advertising and other internet-accessible information. He uses both material and digital collage techniques to make works that re-process the massive amounts of information disseminated and ingested within contemporary society. In these new contexts, the media becomes raw, malleable material to build new visual structures within the framework of abstract painting.

Manipulated vintage pin-up photos of women who had been photographed in front of an interior curtain or drape.
I was interested in blocking out the main areas of interest in the image - making a focal point of the image disappear and instead make the background engulf the foreground. Although the model is covered she still manages to tease the viewer to look at the picture and pay attention.
