Open space Presents - Charles Campbell
Friday, March 22nd, 2013
Charles Campbell packs complex references into artworks of unnerving, covert beauty. The Transporter project, inhabiting the interstices of artistic and political concerns, began initially as a visual investigation of the phenomenon of forced migration. Campbell discovered instead that his work sparked the desire to find a material form for his painterly motifs, which had been drawn from political imagery, and therein discovered a way to invoke the interplay between various aspirational futures and the present.
Transporter revives the genre of history painting in a series of 3D paintings that combine Buckminster Fuller’s utopian architecture with loaded political imagery and elements dispersed in the communities around Open Space.
Campbell will be working in the North Gallery in January and February, developing a body of work for exhibition in the Main Gallery space opening March 1.
