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”.
