Russell Sheridan (1956-.) Australia

Biographical Information

Born in Beverley, W. A. in 1956 Russell Sheridan grew up in Bunbury and now lives near Dardanup on the site of on old farm house on Crooked Brook with his wife Linda Skrolys. He is a graduate of Claremont School of Art. A larger than life character himself, Sheridan memorably mythologises the Australian larrikin.

Using local anti-heroes like Moondyne Joe, John Boyle O’Reilly and Lasseter he whimsically explores society’s outsiders and law breakers in mediums as varied as bronzes, chain-saw shaping, ceramics and mixed media.

His work is innovative and provocative and warmed with humanity and humour. Russell has established himself as an icon in the Southwest during the 1990’s where his public art has shaped the culture and the visual character of Bunbury and the region.

His work is in numerous prominent collections including the Art Gallery of WA. Edit or add to this biography
