Exhibition: Jim Campbell

September 5 12:00 am

Jim Campbell primarily utilizes LEDs to translate time-based subjects—scenes of jostling crowds, found home movies, and the rhythmic movements of nature, such as waves and clouds—into blurred or gridded forms that test the limits of perception. In its abstract orientation and encouragement of extended contemplation, Campbell’s art shares much with other works in the vibrant, light-filled, and expansive galleries in the Anderson Collection.
