The work of Ai Campbell celebrates the compelling nature of art’s most basic elements, using the monochromatic colors of black and white to amplify positive negative spaces through the contrast. Her works are inspired by organic forms, from the nascent to the moribund. By eliminating the diversity of color, the monochromatic spaces enhance the contour of shapes allowing her to see vividly the simple yet critical elements of objects. The resulting works are powerfully delicate yet paradoxically complex detailed paintings
and drawings that arrest the imagination of the audience.
