Born in 1960 in Sydney, Cressida Campbell is one of Australia’s most uncompromising artists.
She studied at East Sydney Technical College (now the National Art School) and the Yoshida Hanga Academy in Tokyo. She has had twenty solo exhibitions in Sydney, Brisbane and London and has contributed to numerous group exhibitions.
Her work has been acquired by many public collections including the National Gallery of Australia, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the British Museum and by private collectors in Australia and internationally. She lives in Sydney with her husband and two cats.
This comprehensive survey of her woodblock painting from 1984 to 2008, spanning 25 years, displays an artist who works from inner compulsion rather than public ambition.
Nearly three hundred images have been assembled here, carefully edited into nine distinct sections. It’s a book that displays a sensitive and introspective imagination at work, a book which allows the pictures to speak for themselves.
With an Introduction by John McDonald, art critic of the Sydney Morning Herald, a Forward by Edmund Capon, director of the Art Gallery of NSW and a catalogue raisonné by Brett Stone.
