Michelle Campbell graduated from the Glasgow School of Art with a BA(hons) in Fine Art. She has lived in Glasgow for the last 15+ years.
Campbell has been fascinated by all things geometric since childhood. The world was primarily seen as a myriad of groups of shapes and colours. Later she developed an interest in computer technology and admired computer manipulation of imagery to create a very geometric and ‘broken down’ look.
All of Campbell’s work is hand-painted from scratch without the aid of media packages. Stylistically she aims to give the impression of the full image with blocks of colours and angled lines. She is interested in the way the eye sees between the lines, fills in the gaps that aren’t there. By dissecting the image into many small blocks of colour, Campbell invites the viewer to appreciate the true, enormous spectrum that we see in faces, objects and places on a day-to-day basis.
