Marjorie Campbell: Imagined Winter, November 20 – January 10, 2014
November 20 – January 10, 2014
Alison Milne Gallery is pleased to present Marjorie Campbell’s first solo exhibition Imagined Winter. Focusing on the intention or persona of an animal, Campbell explores the possibilities of felt in a soft and gentle world where life is heightened and magic exists.
As wool is pulled and forms are sculpted, alluring and complex worlds emerge, and the persona of the animal reveals itself. Inanimate objects that conjure movement and possess intent are of interest to the artist.
Campbell explains: “As I add wool and start to grow the structure, I have moments of seeing where the animal comes into focus, and brings stories with it. These stories are the seeds for the environments the animals live in: gathering places of gentleness and mystery.”
Ultimately, Campbell seeks to invite the audience to experience nature’s inherent harmony, “where the small things make the big things happy and the big things protect the small things”.
Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Saturday, 12pm – 6pm or by appointment
