Caryl Campbell Artist Statement

Caryl Campbell was kind enough to send me her artist discription. Her statement follows:

"The works created for this exhibit are a continuation of what I call: The Wilderness Journal Series. They are a product of my interest in natural history and my background in medical science. I love the extravagant fecundity of the natural world, coupled with the careless losses that unfold every day. This paradox is endlessly fascinating. The paintings are an extension of my daily natural history journal, enlarged and abstracted. To make these works I create a formal structure on the canvas with an underlying landscape painting, over which I layer a representation of a journal page, upon which is painted a representational or abstracted element of nature. With this work I would like to draw the viewer into a conversation about the wonder of nature that is all around them if only they would stop, unplug and look around." Just a reminder to those interested in seeing Caryl's art, her work will be exhibited at the Robert Graves Gallery until March 17,2011.
