Brian Scott Campbell

“I make black and white drawings on paper and canvas. These images feature blunt forms over unsteady compositions. The figures depicted in these works move freely between public space, and private moments; they sweat, cry, feverishly run out of the frame, work in the studio, play hockey, or jot down letters. Each moment, whether the figure is in agony or gleeful delusion, is fraught with conflicted emotion or divided attention.”
