Elle Campbell is angelic, intuitive and magnetic. Her practice is raw, orgasmic and frenetic. This paradoxical dialogue underpins elements of the artist’s work, which awe-inspire and reveal intriguing interplays between colour and form, the past and present, the conscious and unconscious, and the permeability and impermeability of art, life and existence.
For the Perth-based visual and textile artist, painting is a way of life. Art has always been central to Campbell’s expression through myriad forms, particularly the kinaesthetic relationship formed with her natural surroundings as a child growing up on a farm in rural Dandaragan, Western Australia.
"A conduit for expression, communication and comprehension, the artist’s practice is a ritualistic digesting of the here and now, what was, and what is yet to come". Jade Balfour
