Helen Campbell

Flasher, ND - United States

Helen often works on location. Along with some works of a more abstract nature, she chooses to use plein air painting as a way to emphasize connection with the land. Art and life can be as close as a painting needing to be executed quickly because of wind, cold, heat, and the changes of shape and color as sun and clouds move. She feels a work is most successful when the colors, textures, and composition fit the overall mood and subject. Working in acrylic with layering and gestural brush strokes, using her palette knife to apply paint or scrape and scratch, Helen's goal is for the paintings to reflect a little of the character of the northern great plains, and by implication, the stamina and grit needed by those who reside here. This is a country of beauty, of big skies, of rolling fields, buttes and coulees. It is also vast, endures droughts and floods, excessive heat and deep cold, and is layered with interesting histories.

Helen's work has been included in juried exhibits in Michigan, New York, North Dakota and Pennsylvania and she has won awards in Michigan and New York. She received a BFA in 1980 from Calvin College, Grand Rapids MI. In 1987 Helen and her husband moved from New York to North Dakota where they have since lived and enjoyed raising their family.
