    Biography

       Kristy Campbell is an Artist and Writer based in Norwich, UK, currently studying on the PGCHE: ADAM course at Norwich University of the Arts. Since graduating with an MA in Fine Art in 2014, she has gone on to exhibit throughout the UK and internationally; venues of note include Somerset House and King’s College (London, UK) in 2018, and EXPO Chicago (Chicago, USA) in 2014, amongst others. In August of 2018 she embarked on a CultureLAB residency at Ipswich County Library, to investigate the role that creativity plays in nurturing a community. Always excited to explore the impact of her artwork in new contexts, Campbell recently completed a commission for the cover artwork of Boiler House Press’s 2019 Fiction collection.

       This practice looks to convey the fluid ambiguity of meaning, manifesting in projects that derive from typographic forms and a familiar recognisable language. Her abstract-minimalist designs stem from research on Deconstruction and Deconstructivism. They intend to tilt, to fragment, and to stylize composing a dysfunctional and seemingly misguided structure, making way for an accessible alternative freedom within language.
