Campbell, Alice

Drawing on my Scottish, Irish and Caribbean heritage as well as other cultural references, the work I create depicts surreal, other-worldly and rather playful imagery with a strong narrative art style running throughout. Through predominantly painting and printmaking, this cultural ‘mash-up’ provides me with my own individual outlook where I enjoy inventing my own characters and surroundings, often with scant regard to the logic and order of the real world. While the imagery in my work frequently derives from my own experiences, more established narratives of folklore, mythology and illuminated manuscripts have had an important influence on my practice for some time. I am fascinated by the intersection of fact and fiction in mythical legends and folklore.
