The work of Beth Campbell investigates notions of the everyday made strange and unfamiliar by the artist’s clever hand. For Campbell, this exploration is oftentimes personal, and she positions her installations, videos, sculptures, and drawings in close relation to her own subjective view. Yet complicating what appears at first glance to be a facsimile of life is the artist’s masterful ability to confound any expectation. Scenarios repeat in multiple and, in turn, what existed on the plane of the banal becomes twisted and distorted, challenging the limits of human perception.
