The Art of Jennifer Caroline Campbell

Inspired by London’s diverse range of peoples and cultures, Jennifer Caroline Campbell has developed her unique body of work through the process of deconstructing, reducing and transforming what she visually perceive on a daily basis, resulting in an almost cartoonish abbreviation that tend toward abstract painting. Her works fit between three-dimensional and two-dimensional modes by avoiding their framing and allowing the exterior world to infiltrate their territory.

The young British painter is focused on temporary identity, with paint lending a flashy surface to the everyday material that she uses as a canvas.
