Emily Campbell

Emily Campbell

Art forms:  Visual artist, community artist, public artist, designer, illustration

Summary: About Emily Campbell’s practice:

Through the use of photography my practice seeks to create a world that on the one hand is real and on the other – imaginary.  Using digital imaging, I effectively ‘paint with photographs’.  Each image is made up of many smaller photographs enabling me to create surreal and magical scenarios.

The work I create for Public Commissions seeks to create an uplifting yet calming environment.  Often working with a creative writer in the community, I visualise the poetic texts created about the local area.  Large surreal vistas are installed as light boxes or printed onto Perspex, allowing the visitor views of their locality possibly only before seen in their dreams.

Locations: National

Experience:  I have many years experience working in the Public Realm. All my work starts with workshops in the community, which inspire the final artworks. Recent projects include, a series of light boxes for Fulbourn Hospital, Wolverhampton Kings High School and Edinburgh Sick Kids Hospital. Please email me for a full CV.
