Sevenoaks Kaleidoscope Gallery The Sevenoaks Council donated a space of wall for Russell to paint directly onto. The exhibition was held within The Kaleidoscope Gallery, which is a contemporary exhibition space run by Kent County Council to showcase new and experimental work.

Additional Exhibiting artists Included

Exhibiting artists: Jonathan Bentall, Ian Campbell Briggs, Annie Halliday, Emma Harding, Kathleen Fox and Steven Foy.

‘Distracting The Colour’  was a solo exhibition which ran for 3 weeks at the gallery@oxo on London’s Embankment in 2011. The exhibition proudly raised £1000 for the charity ‘Beat Bullying’ with his latest artwork being very well received with positive features on the BBC, financial times & from the many critics, bloggers and journalists that attended the private view evening. When the doors opened to the public the response was equally as positive. With over 2,500 people visiting the exhibition over two and a half weeks.

Russell was ‘humbled by the response and effect the work seemed to have on people, & also how far or to what lengths people had gone to in visiting the exhibition.’

Mark Ellis 1942 to 2014 - ‘Life on Pause.’

 “Mark was a true character of Sevenoaks. With a worn tracksuit, padded for winter and pushing an over loaded bike, stacked to overbalancing with cardboard he was known by sight and sadly unknown by person to many of the locals of Sevenoaks in Kent. You'd hear his jangling trolley of bottles before you saw him appear around the corner, and he'd be gone just as quickly. Day in, day out he had his routine come rain or shine. But unfortunately he was often misjudged and I was by all means just as guilty of this.

   Following an interview it seemed that preconceptions were, as often is the case very incorrect. Mark worked at Customs and Excise for a period but few know that he gained place and attended the Royal college of veterinary science, an achievement in itself academically.


Sadly Mark had personal health problems and tragic family misfortune that seemed to dramatically altered his direction in a way that his mind became trapped amidst the routine of collecting refuge combined with his campaigning for confusing political issues.


  But to view him with a fleeting glace you would almost have labelled him as homeless, to the contrary Mark lived in a beautiful, large house in an expensive part of the affluent town of Sevenoaks in North Kent. On entering his home you’re taken aback by the range of expensive antiques, artwork and artefacts that surround you upon walls and across all three floors of this dusty, light bulb free home that would have been once a hive of family life and beauty. But during our time together, the artefacts, decorations, lighting and property seem to reflect Mark’s inner mind set on life, where our conversations seem to circle in a loop as it feels that he neither moves forward or backwards in his cognitive thought. As heavy set dark red curtains hang only just from their fixings, they allow enough natural light permission to penetrate the room and grant a viewing upon once proud antiques, that sadly now lay buried under years of dust. Both inside and out, the property feels sadly frozen and neglected, a dusty neglected time capsule that mirrors a true eccentric’s life. Rest in peace Mark"

MOROCULL-“Cats and dogs are regularly being culled in Morocco with poisoned meat, the video on the left explains it better but in a nutshell I’m looking for sponsorship to help with this project. I’m travelling out to Morocco to collect video and stills imagery to help a new animal sanctuary get charity status and also to create a short documentary about the subject. There is little knowledge and footage to do with this culling and there are arguments on both sides. The project is costly and time consuming. This is why I extend the hand for sponsorship below. Any amount helps and is appreciated with any excess being distributed as we see fit in Morocco to aid with the animal situation. Many thanks and I’ll keep you posted.”
