Falling for Vancouver

October 30th, 2015

Neil Campbell was born in 1958 in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Neil Campbell’s work engages with physical space to affect our senses, producing both retinal and phenomenological experience. Working directly on the wall, his geometric imagery transforms architectural space in such a way that the viewer’s attention is directed to the act of perception. With an intuitive consideration of space, Campbell scales and situates images as a resonant response to the nature of their architectural context. The motifs that he employs in these installations engage a visual history that ranges from Conceptual Art to Op, from commercial to tantric.

Neil Campbell lives and works in Vancouver. He studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Vancouver School of Art, and Concordia University in Montreal where he received a MFA in 1979.In 2006 he curated Paint: A Psychedelic Primer at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Campbell has had solo exhibitions at Gallery Franco Noero, Turin; Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York; Marianne Boesky Gallery, New York; Art and Public, Geneva, and Blanket, Vancouver. His work has been included in the group shows at the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver; Hayward Gallery, London; Le Magasin, Grenoble; Vancouver Art Gallery; Belkin Gallery, Vancouver; Or Gallery, Vancouver; and Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery, Montreal. His work is represented by Gallery Franco Noero, Turin; Office Baroque, Brussels; and Macaulay Fine Art, Vancouver.
