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.
She explores her own interest in the concept of memory as an emotional experience. She uses her paintings as an expressive tool to explore how the memory of a time, person or place can become warped; faded out against our will or kept vivid in a way that provides much needed comfort, or an overwhelming discomfort. The memory itself evolves from its origins into a new event. Michelle’s subject matter varies, occasionally constructing abstract imagery to create an emotional narrative through colour and form. She often uses landscapes of places she’s visited as a symbolic foundation in which to build her memories on top of, transforming geophysical locations into permanent emotional landscapes.
