Artist - CP Campbell

Catriona has always drawn and painted. While living in New Zealand she studied Art and Creativity (honours) at The Learning Connection, Wellington, specialising in painting and sculpture. She successfully exhibited in many galleries during her 10 year stay. Catriona returned home in 2008 and currently works from her studio at Coburg House, Leith.

Catriona has always had a strong connection with the sea. Her attraction to the industrial seascape with its metal hulls and rusty signage was sparked while living in port towns in New Zealand and Scotland.

The process of layering, scraping and shaping the paint allows her to play with both surface and depth and to explore the tension between formal structure and the element of chance. Although the overall aesthetic is her strongest guide, symbolism and metaphor also play a part. Recent paintings incorporating sailors’ tattoos and rusty bolts in braille continue to work with ideas of navigation, safety, buoyancy and a sense of place.
WORKS HELD IN PRIVATE COLLECTIONS – NEW ZEALAND, AUSTRALIA, HONG KONG, HOLLAND, GERMANY AND UNITED KINGDOM.
