Liza Campbell is a London-based artist, born in the Highlands of Scotland and raised at Cawdor Castle.
Liza takes found etchings printed on silk and paper and antique photographs, and then re-works them using ink and acrylic in bright, psychedelic formations. Her re-working, which she defines as ‘tinkering’, ‘intruding’ and ‘attacking’, is also felt in the way that she re-titles each work, a sardonic quip written across the bottom of each engraving in the artist’s hand, each one-liner humorously re-contextualising the image.
Moving to London aged 17, she studied Art at Chelsea College of Arts, before relocating to a remote island off the coast of Kenya. It was here that she encountered soapstone engraving, and began studying this traditional African craft in the context of her own work. Since then her artistic practice has also included engraving, embroidery and collage. She has exhibited at the All Saints gallery, Sladmore gallery, Michael Naimsky gallery, Temple gallery, the Great W Space gallery, London Art Fair, Affordable Art Fair, Art on Paper NY, Print Fair NY, Rebecca Hossack gallery and does private commissions.
