Printmaker / Weaver

Sharon Campbell comes to printmaking from a background in weaving. Her focus has been on the extreme use of color, and printmaking is the perfect extension of that. The print isn’t the goal, but a step in the process, where color is allowed to build and create movement and story.

Color mixing in weaving is optical — two different threads cross each other to create a pixel that fools the eye into believing those two threads are a third color. Printmaking colors can be blended on the palette or layered during repeated inking. It’s an adventure with endless outcomes.
