Cressida Campbell Exhibition
We took a drive up to Sydney and on the way, we stopped in Canberra to see the incredible exhibition of Cressida Campbell at the National Gallery of Australia.
From the gallery:
Cressida Campbell is among Australia’s most significant contemporary artists working with painting and printmaking. Directly inspired by her surroundings, for over 40 years the Gadigal/Sydney-based artist has transformed commonplace experiences from her life into single edition prints and painted woodblocks.
Combining keen observation with a delicacy of line, Campbell’s woodblock paintings and prints capture the overlooked beauty of the everyday. Through her views of a working harbour or burnt bushland, an arrangement of nasturtiums or a plate of ripening persimmons, the artist celebrates the transitory moments of life.
The survey exhibition will present the depth and virtuosity of Campbell's work, extending from intimate interior views through to panoramic coastal landscapes. It will be accompanied by an exhibition catalogue that features writing from curators, artists, poets and other voices.
Can you guess which one is the print and which one is the woodblock?
