Exhibition preview

IN June 2016, Rebecca Campbell is returning to Jonathan Cooper with a solo show of over 20 new paintings.

In this exhibition, entitled Love, Campbell explores the pleasures and sorrows of love in all its myriad forms, journeying through passion and temptation, the agony and anticipation of courtship, and the bitter-sweet memory of lost love.

Whether depicting the great romances of history and literature, the comfort of familial love, or the modern mores of dating in the digital age, Campbell approaches this enormous theme with great sensitivity and humour, and all visitors, whatever their experience of love, will find works which delight and inspire.

Rebecca Campbell (b.1965, in Stamford, Lincolnshire) lives and works in South London. She trained at the City and Guilds of London Art School and in 2005 was awarded the Discerning Eye – Chairman’s Purchase Prize, Mall Galleries. In addition to solo shows at Jonathan Cooper, Campbell has also exhibited in Mexico City, San Francisco, and Houston, Texas.

She has developed a highly imaginative pictorial language, taking influences from Indian Mughal miniatures, Persian textiles, and medieval tapestries to create her own unique decorative style. In 2015, she was chosen to be Elephant Family’s Official Artist of the year, decorating a rickshaw which was one of 20 auctioned at the end of July 2015, raising over £700,000 for the charity.
