Tammi Campbell Biography

Tammi Campbell’s method for penetrating the male-dominated Modernist and Minimalist canons hinges on an enormous amount of research that allows her to technically and truthfully replicate each work. The results of which are perfect stand-ins for their respective originals. Her visible additives, whether bubble wrap, tape, or leaving some element undone, tends to generate both 'a-ha' excitement and confusion. A closer look at these paintings show that the protective bubble wrap and tape are in fact an illusion—trompe l’oeil painting taken to its hyperrealistic extreme. The materials cast completely from acrylic paint medium suspend viewers in a perpetual state of anticipation and prevents us from entering a true work of art.
