Ai S Campbell
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Gowanus



ARTIST STATEMENT: Iíve been fascinated with detailed monochromatic works since the first time I saw the beautiful landscape drawings of my grandfather, a successful industrial designer. During the war, he spent his spare time drawing the places where he was stationed. The consistent 5 x 7 inch works contained fine details in the vivid contrast of black and white. Because he passed away before I was born, those drawings were my only interactions with him. The simple yet explosive black and white spaces enhance the contour of shapes allowing one to see vividly simple yet critical object elements. An obsession with this type of imagery has become the central theme of my own work: engaging the most basic elements of life to build or extract the most complex. I feature the organic shapes and natural forms that I encounter, such as water streams on a faded wall, layered leaves on a tree or my own tangled hair, exploring how their virgin elements can interact. I think the individually lifeless elements start to breath in the company of other types. My work will continue to explore the beauty and power in lifeís intricate organic forms and I am excited to see evolution.
