Resolutions

Had some time to think over the past couple of weeks – in between the throng of Christmas – and have decided to embark on a new series of BIG pieces all linked to the Taoist words (which have been rolling around in my head and sketchbooks for years): “…Man models himself on earth.. earth on heaven…”  Will have to make the sculptures in sections, but it’s a challenge.  Will post images of their progress.

Do please join me on @fionasculpture (Twitter), Fiona Campbell Art (Facebook) and Linkedin.  I’ve also added two new sculpture films to my YouTube channel, so have a look!  And finally, my website is regularly updated:  www.fionacampbellart.co.uk

HAPPY NEW YEAR:-)

Looking back at 2011 and forward to 2012

Looking back at 2011, it’s been a busy, hard-working year and despite the financial slump I’ve survived and been involved in various fresh, exciting creative ventures.  Had some great Exhibitions with other inspiring artists (eg: ‘Mystery and Mutability’ alongside Kitty Hillier, Bridgwater Arts Centre & Gallery4Art’s Binham Grange Summer Art Show, Minehead); founded the ‘Scraptors‘ with Paul Boswell, Rachel Macleay & Anthony Wilson – creating our first Scraptors Sculpture Trail at Stourhead National Trust Gardens, Wiltshire; completed several interesting commissions – some with community participation (eg: Insects at Stackpool Park, Kidderminster); awarded a prize for Nestling Cocoon (Millfield Summer Show, Atkinson Gallery); ran numerous workshops with children and adults (including Larmer Tree Festival); took part in Somerset Art Weeks at Stoberry Park, Wells and now preparing for our next ‘Scraptorzoic Era’ landscape with the Scraptors at the Magdalen Project, Somerset/Dorset – planned for 2012.  

Other projects for the coming year include a Solo Exhibition ‘Case Space’ at Bruton Museum (Feb) and the Summer Exhibition at Bishops Palace Gardens, Wells.  More Exhibitions are in the pipeline – to be confirmed soon.

Below are some images of work created in 2011 (for further details visit www.fionacampbellart.co.uk):
