Cathy Campbell


We are delighted to be exhibiting paintings by oil painter Cathy Campbell in a two person exhibition alongside digital painter Kevin Low.



Sweet Medicine
 
 
 
Cathy Campbell studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee, (BA Fine Art)
from 1982 to 1986.



Glisten
 
 
 
She is a colourist in the true sense of the word.  The process most often begins with a window or natural light.  Her ideas come from light falling on the many objects that she has accumulated. 




Early Days



Some of her works take on a luminescent, gentle impressionist quality, although others have a more na├»ve, bold feel.
 
 

Russian Doll




 
She says, "I don't think it's a question of making a portrait of the objects or of telling a story. It's about shapes, colour, darkness and light and their relationship to each other.  I have become less concerned with tone while engaging far more with colour and shape. This
new approach involves far less heavy reworking. The paintings are lighter in touch and in tone and I sense that this changing concern has breathed new life into my work. There is a new immediacy and freedom in my work which I feel reflects pleasure in the process.”






Where You Go
 
 


She creates her beautiful paintings from her studio in Blanefield, near Glasgow.
 
The exhibition continues until 18 October.
 
 
Thanks for reading!
