David Campbell

Dividing his time between a traditional village house in a remote area of the Peloponnese, Southern Greece and his studio in a Victorian townhouse in the centre of the City of York, England, David Campbell’s work has consistently been informed by a love of the natural environment whilst acknowledging the human presence. Within this context he has pursued an exploration into the nature of mark-making and the ways and means of creating complex surfaces. Past work has been concerned with botanical forms, the flora and geology of a particular valley in the Yorkshire Dales and is now primarily inspired by the area around his home in Greece. Here, the iconography in medieval church paintings, the flora, the geological strata and the detritus of more recent history, have provided the inspiration for his work in recent years.
