Abstract

A stone carver who originally trained as a painter, the author analyzes major tendencies in twentieth-century painting for their bearing on both modern sculpture and his own carvings. Campbell interprets his turning to sculpture as a natural outgrowth of this early work as a painter of geometric, hard-edge abstractions. He relates sculptural form in his carvings to such primitive elements as gravity, volume, weight, mass and color of individual stones. His site works mingle metaphors derived from myth, art history and astronomy with others that are technological, sociological and topological.
