Sandra Campbell


Sandra Jones Campbell's depiction of social and political scenes reflect both her professional respect for the 30's style German Expressionists Max Beckman, George Grosz and Otto Dix, and her uniquely gentle wit. Multiple figures populate lively acrylics on paper or canvas images that blend Sandra's optimism and candor, along with the artist's keen visual skill: balancing color, form composition, humor and subject matter. 

Sandra describes her paintings as composites of social sightings portraying evocative associations from a voyeuristic perspective, often at moments of personal social apprehensions or sociological attitudes. Her visual narratives achieve effects that are simultaneously playful and sophisticated. 

Sandra's provocative paintings have been shown in over thirty five one and two people exhibits, and at museum exhibitions in California, Oregon, Massachusetts and Arizona. Paintings by Sandra Jones Campbell are included in permanent collections both national and around the world.
