Most artists nowadays seek to capture “extraordinary” moments from the world that surround us which often leaves the “ordinary” overlooked. Still, there are some artists, like Rachel Campbell, who get their inspiration from less flashy and underappreciated scenes that we witness every day.
Campbell is best known for her oil paintings that capture the moments from life that everyone can relate to. This includes still life works depicting snacks, bakery interiors and other as well as different kind of landscapes which focus on driveways, backyards, storefronts, and countryside.
“I am repeatedly drawn to depicting and interpreting variations in this often unnoticed but deeply constitutive interaction. So even though people are seldom directly depicted in my work they are always present within it,” says Campbell.
Campbell was born in New Zealand, where she finished art school. She lives in the United States since 2003. Her works were exhibited all over the world and made their way to art collections in more than a dozen countries.
