About the Artist
At the root of her practice is the notion of interconnectedness throughout nature, energy, life’s cyclical persistence, and transformation. Increasingly, environmental concerns about human exploitation of nature and over-consumption inform the content, taking her work into the realm of activism.
Fiona Campbell has an MFA from Bath Spa University. She gained a Royal Society of Sculptors Gilbert Bayes Award 2019 and recently won a global arts Award from Red Line Art Works, a global art project. As part of her practice, she embraces community engagement. She enjoys curating art projects in unexpected places. In 2015 she was awarded Arts Council funding for an ambitious project step in stone – site-specific artscapes in Mendip quarries with 14 international artists. The multidisciplinary event linked culture, environment, and community.
