Jacinda Russell works primarily in photography, sculpture, installation, and bookmaking. Her work “transforms objects into self-portraits, representations of place and symbols of fixation.” During her time at Surel’s Place, she worked on a series entitled Clear Water Samples in which bodies of water take on as much personal meaning as they do visual beauty. Russell led at art talk at Surel’s Place to share her artistic process with others.
Born in Idaho, she received her BFA from Boise State University in Studio Art and her MFA from the University of Arizona in Photography. Currently, she is an Associate Professor of Art at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana.
