"Making a World She Wants to See in Portraits of Female Artists" by Carey Dunn
"This 'visual index' addresses issues of representation very literally. 'I wanted women to be seen, so I painted their pictures,' Campbell tells Hyperallergic. ' I wanted to see them reflected in the world around me, so I literally made them the world around me.'"
What Rebecca's doing in a very beautiful, subtle way is saying: Look, here's all these artists who are working right now in Los Angeles. Do you know them? They want to meet you. They want their work to be known in the public realm and considered on equal footing with male peers."
"Campbell’s “You Are Here” series musters creative women into a responsive unit, as viewers face the steady gaze of gracious and successful women that lead the closure of the gender gap."
- Sydney Walters
"Rebecca Campbell believes in paying it forward as her most recent exhibition entitled You Are Here at LA Louver so elegantly demonstrates. Each of these eighteen portraits represents an image of a woman artist whom Campbell knows and admires, but more importantly perhaps the paintings express a wondrous and mysterious collaborative process between the artist and the sitter." -Eve Wood
L.A. Louver is proud to present an exhibition by artist Rebecca Campbell that features a new series of portraits, all of woman artists.
Motivated by the lack of gender equity in the creative world, and in homage to the artists who inspire her, Campbell began her You are Here project in Fall 2015. The first 19 paintings were exhibited at L.A. Louver January 13 –February 13, 2016.Read More
