Jill Campbell, Abstract Landscape Artist

“Jill Campbell creates bewitching and responsive paintings that articulate aspects of the North Pennines, where she lives. One can at once see an intention to distance from reality and to ground the works within a definite landscape, as exemplified by the titles of her recent paintings. These works are not entirely abstract, drawing us into contemplation of individual areas of the canvases – celebrations of the natural world and the possibilities of a painterly world simultaneously.” Yorkshire Art Journal, 9 August 2014

Jill graduated from the University of Sunderland in 2014 with a first class degree in fine art. Her painting is a response to the wild and beautiful North Pennines where she lives. Describing her approach, she says: “I am conscious that, although I look at landscape, I am also within it, and this, for me, means painting what is experienced as well as what is seen. I am aware that in my work there is a tension between trying to achieve detached observation whilst at the same time engaging with the experience – looking and being; distance and closeness.”

This approach has revealed itself as a movement between loose figuration and increasing abstraction. Her paintings are an exploration of her awareness of being in the world and an attempt to find a balance between abstraction and representation which will express this. Jill Campbell will be exhibiting at this year’s Great North Art Show.
