Rebecca Campbell


I recently stumbled upon the work of Rebecca Campbell (literally) one day using Stumble Upon. For those of you who do not have this on your web browser, it is a must! (

Anyway, Rebecca Campbell is a relatively young artist whose work thus far mostly focuses on women in different settings, some fantasy, some realistic as well as portraiture with the utmost realism. Most people know Chuck Close as the pioneer of photo-realism, but Rebecca Campbell is definitely doing her thang. Her website is really great because the visitor can see the progression from her thesis work during art school to the work she is more currently producing. She works in other mediums such as mixed media and photography but I think that her paintings' are the most noteworthy of her portfolio. For someone who feels a little intimidated by art, she is a really great painter to take note of, she puts it all out there for you to take in.

She is currently being exhibited and represented by the Ameringer-Yohe Gallery in New York City. The gallery is exhibiting her series entitled Xanadu. The Ameringer-Yohe Gallery also exhibits the work of modern artists, most notably Jackson Pollock, Willem De Koonig and David Hockey, that's a big deal!!

Check her stuff out at or at 20 W. 57th Street, NY, NY
