About Neil Campbell

Neil Campbell is a Canadian painter currently based in Vancouver. He studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Vancouver School of Art; and Concordia University, Montreal, from which he received an MFA in 1979.

Campbell’s works – which range in execution from wall paintings, painted panels that gesture toward the sculptural, photography, and light installations – address the expanded somatic field and the physicality connected to the act of viewing. Graphic, geometric shapes and pattern fields in turns overwhelm and converse with the human scale and invite viewers into an affective and reflexive experience that provokes aspects of the physiological, cognitive, and spiritual.

Campbell’s work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York; Galleria Franco Noero, Turin; Art & Public, Geneva; Teck Gallery, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver; Marianne Boesky Gallery, New York; and Blanket Gallery, Vancouver. His work has been included in group shows at the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; Vancouver Art Gallery; Hayward Gallery, London; Le Magasin, Grenoble; Palazzo Fortuny, Venice; Reva and David Logan Centre for the Arts, Chicago; Morris and Helen Belkin Gallery, Vancouver; VeneKlasen/Werner, Berlin; Gladstone Gallery, New York; and the Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver.

He is represented by Galleria Franco Noero, Turin and Office Baroque, Brussels.
