ELIZABETH J CAMPBELL

My creative process is informed by concepts of visual literacy. The dot, line, shape, direction and colour are all crucial factors in visual literacy as they act as a language for us to read and understand our surroundings. I am most inspired when elements of ‘visual stress’ are introduced, such as contrast and imbalance. I use these elements in my work to create bold, modernist designs which aim to fascinate and attract the viewer with colour, pattern and material.

I am attracted to enamel because of its methodical process, which allows me to achieve colour, pattern and texture in a formal and structured way. My love of this technique has led me to explore alternative materials in my work, not normally associated with enamelling. The use of ceramic honeycomb block as a carving material enables me to create tactile and sculptural forms, which I then enhance with colourful enamel in a similar process to traditional enamelling, but on an unexpected and innovative material.
