Originally from New Zealand,
where she won the 1995 Telecom Art Award, Rachel Campbell has exhibited internationally; she’s been in a summer show at the Royal Academy of Art in London and had solo shows in Germany and North Carolina, where she now lives. This show focuses on still lifes, landscapes and interior scenes done during the pandemic, stressing the simplicity, silence and solitude that surrounded the lockdowns. David Hockney’s shadow is long, but Campbell’s unique talent shines through.

 Biography         CV         Statement  

“My paintings are about commonplace moments that intrigue me. I look for the beauty in unexpected places. I choose to paint with abstracted realism. The places and images are clearly recognizable. I use colour and manipulate composition to interpret the story I want to tell. I ask myself how I want to depict my relationship to this experience or space.”
