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.
Academic Background and Awards
Jennifer Caroline Campbell earned a BA in Fine Art from the Norwich School of Art and Design in 2008 and an MFA in Painting from the Slade School of Fine Art in 2014.
She was the winner of the Jeremy Cubitt Prize in 2013 which promote excellence in painting. The same year Campbell was the winner of the Barbican Arts Group Trust Prize which culminated in an exhibition in the same year at Artworks Project Space in London. In 2014, she was shortlisted for the Griffin Art Prize, as well as for the Land Securities studio residency.
Power Puff Princess
Power Puff Princess was Jennifer’s first solo show in the United Kingdom since she completed her Masters studies in 2014. It was held at Marcelle Joseph Projects in London, in March 2015. For this two-day show, Jennifer Caroline Campbell created an entirely new body of work, melding the sculptural object with the painted surface.
