Jon Campbell’s exhibition, Afternoon Delight, brings together a selection of recent watercolours and wall paintings that continue his engagement with the use of text to communicate the diverse voices and cultural landscape of his local environment. With his use of words and phrases as imagery, he captures aspects of his culture that are both lived and observed. His works define not only the look of the world in which he lives but the accent and humour of its language. They have a beauty and celebration about them that encourage belief.
The opening of this exhibition will also be the launch of Campbell’s new artist book, It’s a World full of Cover Versions, a collection of painted text cards that have been previously used in music performances and which was designed and printed by Aaron Beehre at Ilam Press, UC.
