Mary Campbell is an interdisciplinary artist living in Portland, Oregon. Her work spans media encompassing painting, sculpture, installation, photography, and video. By stealing from her observed environment, the work borrows and recreates familiar objects of our surroundings, re-contextualizing them in compositions concerned with color, form, and pattern.
Drawing inspiration from window-dressings, production sets and commercial photography, the objects are carefully arranged in space as if being presented to an audience. The imagined history of the found and crafted objects influence the direction of the installation and assigns a personality to the things themselves.
