Trish Campbell

New Zealand-based artist Trish Campbell has been experimenting with colour since the very beginning of her practice, fusing and commingling neon hues to create works that evoke a deep emotional response within the viewer. 

Using LEDs, gel and acrylic, she fills boxes with light and colour, combining them inharmonious or contrasting compositions according to her instincts until they comprise a transportive light sculpture. She tends not to work towards a pre-determined design. “When I start out making my art,” she explains, “it is never about what I wish to convey, because I don’t know. It is about what feels right.” This sense of intuition and freedom of expression is palpable in her finished works. Their strong colours invoke feelings of joy and delight, bringing a sense drama, usually only found in the white cube, into the home of the viewer.
