Second time participating in Art With Heart
With her Monochrome series, Campbell activates several resources that are familiar to her. In the gallery, everything is paint. This time, however, what is meticulously recreated from a mixture of acrylic-based mediums, are packing materials: corrugated cardboard, clear polyethylene wrap, bubble wrap, packing tape, etc. These tableaux more closely resemble a kind of three-dimensional painting, and blur the boundaries between the properties of each medium, along with the traditional categories of art history.
