Jill Campbell

Jill’s paintings are a response to the wild and beautiful North Pennines where she lives- the landscape of Weardale , Teesdale and Cockfield Fell. This collection is based on the Weardale landscape between Egglestone and Stanhope and are influenced by the poetry about that area by WH Auden.

“Jill Campbell creates bewitching and responsive paintings that articulate aspects of the North Pennines, where she lives. One can at once see an intention to distance from reality and to ground the works within a definite landscape, as exemplified by the titles of her recent paintings. These works are not entirely abstract, drawing us into contemplation of individual areas of the canvases – celebrations of the natural world and the possibilities of a painterly world simultaneously.” Yorkshire Art Journal, 9 August 2014
