CRESSIDA CAMPBELL by NGA (HB)

$89.99

DUE OCTOBER!  Cressida Campbell celebrates the career of an exceptional Australian colourist who has worked between painting and printmaking for over forty years. Combining keen observation with formal design, Campbell uses an innovative technique to create woodblock paintings and unique woodcut prints that take direct inspiration from the humble beauty of the everyday. Moving between still-life arrangements, domestic interiors, gardens and coastal panoramas, her stylised compositions intertwine life and art. Their astonishing detail and technical virtuosity are testament to Campbell's artistic vision and commitment.

This book offers new insights into Cressida Campbell's life and work, featuring original research and reflections from curators, artists, poets and writers, as well the artist's own autobiographical notes. Generously illustrated, the publication will locate Campbell within the lineage of significant Australian contemporary artists.

Published to coincide with the Cressida Campbell exhibition at the NGA opening 24 September, 2022.  This exhibition is a Know My Name Project -

Know My Name: Australian Women Artists 1900 to Now showcases art made by women. Drawn from the National Gallery’s collection and loans from across Australia, it is one of the most comprehensive presentations of art by women assembled in this country to date.
Told in two parts, this exhibition tells a new story of Australian art. Looking at moments in which women created new forms of art and cultural commentary such as feminism, Know My Name highlights creative and intellectual relationships between artists across time.
Know My Name is not a complete account; instead, the exhibition proposes alternative histories, challenging stereotypes and highlighting the stories and achievements of all women artists.
