This event has ended.

An exhibition of new paintings by Los Angeles based artist Rebecca Campbell who is best known for her bold, figurative paintings. In this exhibition, Campbell explores the unconscious with surreal images that challenge the distinction between representation and abstraction, reality, and fantasy. The inspiration for this body of work began with Campbell's interest in crossing autobiographical subject matter with allegorical material by drawing on experiences from her own life as well images from her dreams. Campbell develops her ideas by taking photographs of staged subjects, which she then proceeds to render as drawings or small studies before addressing larger canvases. The ground of each painting consists of a single vibrant color, which lights the work from beneath. Upon this ground Campbell juxtaposes thin washes of translucent colors, with thick impasto and sweeping brushstrokes to build her composition.
