‘Beauty surrounds us, but usually we need to be walking in a garden to know it’.
The luscious hues, satisfying geometry and life-enhancing energy in Rebecca Campbell’s oil paintings are to some degree a celebration of the miniature paintings of the Mughal empire, with their reverence for nature, architecture and gardens. Brought up in rural Ireland, Rebecca developed a love of horticulture early in life so it was no surprise that on first visiting India, she was enthralled by the colour, beauty, chaos and diversity of its flora, fauna and festivals. Now based in London, Rebecca’s work has been exhibited as far afield as Mexico City, San Francisco and Houston, Texas. Since 2015 she as been an ambassador for Elephant Family, a charity started by the late Mark Shand, dedicated to the protection and preservation of the Asian elephant.
