Jules Campbell’s recent work references her experiences navigating cities and urban environments. Having lived in both London and San Francisco, and a frequent visitor of New York City, Campbell is obsessed with the geometrics and the skyline towering above teaming of masses of humanity going about their daily business. The abstracted forms in Campbell’s work suggest either a city sky-scape or an urban aerial view. Graphic elements are reminiscent of the pervasive signage of metropolitan areas and abraded surfaces allude to the wear and tear of the city.
The Close Quarters series was recently shown in Point of Convergence at GearBox Gallery 770 West Grand Ave., Oakland CA.
