ARTISTS

Fiona Campbell
 
Fiona is an artist who works with a range of materials – mainly found and reclaimed - such as metals, glass, wax, wood, paper, fabric and plastic.  Her work crosses boundaries between sculpture, drawing and installation.
My work is primarily hand-made using labour-intensive building processes such as wrapping, weaving and layering - forms of 3d mark-making.  I am exploring connections between line and energy, weaving drawings in space.  Environmental concerns are important to me.  My use of discarded materials relates to the issue of waste, utilising and giving them a new life.  It belongs to a wider subject of our relationship with matter, nature, and ourselves."
In addition to her art practice, Fiona runs community art projects and teaches art.
