Solo exhibition of vivid new works by Durham-based oil painter Rachel Campbell. Campbell renders domestic and rural scenes from Durham or her
native New Zealand that are largely devoid of people, yet pregnant with possibility. Seemingly mundane places become sites of mystery, poised on the edge of revelation: an empty room bears traces of recent habitation. Shopfronts are deserted, and even cars lack drivers, as if the populace has been suddenly deleted from existence. These canvases pose the question of what will come next if their scenes are unfrozen and allowed to play out.
