G. Russell Case

G. Russell Case

G. Russell Case is inspired by nature, but he places little value on literal translations. His sweeping, idealized versions of the Western landscape are compositions that combine the beauty of the natural world with the rich imagination and originality of an artist’s mind. While there is an unmistakable honesty present in his painted environments, Case’s work is unfettered by philosophy and intellect, though he is surely a student of his artistic forebears. His paintings transport the viewer into a world created by shadow and light, of immense vistas punctuated by jagged mountains, and inhabited by lonesome cowboys and native Indians.

In 2012 he was awarded Best of Show at the Coors Western Art Exhibition & Sale, where he was also a featured artist in 2010. He has won several awards at the Maynard Dixon Country exhibition, including the Edith Hamlin award in 2005, the Golden Thunderbird Award for Best of Show in 2004, as well as other People’s Choice and Artist’s Choice awards. In 2001 he was awarded the Best of Show at the Phippen Western Art Show in Prescott, AZ. Russell also participates in Prix de West, Oklahoma City, OK.

Russell Case resides in Brigham City, UT. He is married to Susanne and they have three children Taylee (Nick Winder), Morgan, and Cooper. He is also a proud grandpa to Afton Winder. Russell’s work is represented in galleries including Astoria Jackson, WY; David Ericson Fine Art in Salt Lake City, UT; Bingham Gallery in Mt. Carmel, UT; Gerald Peters Gallery in Santa Fe, Mockingbird Gallery, Bend, OR; Overland Gallery in Scottsdale.
