The Travelers

Karen Albanese Campbell's avatar Karen Albanese Campbell

“The Travelers” Nearly life-sized paintings in acrylic and oil pastel on primed canvas, bound with mylar from rescue “space” blankets. They retain the irregular shape of piles of blankets. I intend to exhibit them in groups as a procession. The Mylar is printed with safety and rescue information and creates a visually interesting contrast with the matte surface of the painting. The inspiration for the patterns of the sky came from observing a discarded mirror-clad table I found on the tree-belt in my neighborhood. It reflected the sky and was nearly invisible until I came close enough to see what it really was.
