About

CHRISTOPHER CAMPBELL'S 'New Romantic' is a series of landscape paintings taking account of art history - from Friedrich and Turner to the Hudson River School, documents of an old landscape being seen anew, disregarded wildernesses transformed at a Romantic stroke into embodiments of the Sublime. As well as art's history, though, there's a keen awareness of its present and more recent past. Abstract elements and graphic motifs intrude, setting up a friction, an irreconcilable dualism of the precisely figurative and the experimental. The aim, in Campbell's own words, is 'to create a world that is fantastical, disturbing and somewhat aloof'. (Christopher Campbell is the winnner of studio1.1's 2011 Lottery Show draw)
