Kerry Campbell is attracted to the clean and poetic energy of the mid 20th century modern aesthetic which exemplifies simplicity and celebrates the juxtaposition of form and space. Her work explores the intersection and interplay of ideas, life’s exquisite beauty or agony, individual expression, and relational metaphor.
Uber modernist, Kerry’s work is bold and expressive abstract representations of form. The forms in her work interplay with each other and express a type of relationship, an abstract tension, or a metaphorical mood or sense of story. She also explores human relationships and allegory through abstract figurative works that explore the themes of relationships and alienation. Other works are abstract expressionist in their story-telling.
Kerry received a Bachelor of Arts at the University of California, Davis, where she studied under the New York artist, Jane Rosen. She holds an M.A. in Creative Writing and often writes poems to go with her works. She has exhibited throughout the United States, including Washington D.C., Seattle, Los Angeles, and San Diego.
