About Jack Campbell

For fourteen years Jack taught drawing and painting workshops for the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design Outreach Program and for eight years taught full time at the Kootenay School of Art in Nelson. He taught at various summer schools and art organizations through the province. Raised in New Westminster B.C., Jack was a painter and graphic designer since graduating as an honor student from the Fourth Year Program of the Vancouver School of Art (Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design).

Jack has had over 30 one man exhibitions in British Columbia of his drawings, paintings and paper sculptures. He participated in many group shows in Western Canada and Washington. His work is in private and corporate collections throughout North America and Europe.

Jack worked from his Saturna Island studio and gallery specializing in watercolor and acrylic painting as well as paper sculptures and murals.   He painted scenes of Saturna Island and the west coast, as well as figurative compositions.

 

In his paintings as well as his paper sculpture designs, Jack was intrigued by shapes.  He referred to his approach as "exploring with pieces (shapes) of color."  Jack's work stresses the life of shapes on their own as key elements in a composition which were combined with other elements to make up the final piece of art.

 

His paintings and paper sculptures are in collections throughout the world.

Jack's work is available in Iris Giclée Prints. Giclée prints are now widely shown and distributed throughout the world. The main reason for acceptance of giclée prints and their notable growth is their quality.  People are immediately taken with the look and feel of giclée because of the use of archival stock and its rich colors. Using a color management system, a proof is printed on fine art paper ensuring that the highest quality has been achieved. Prints can then be produced in custom sized on Archival quality paper and canvas.

Since Jacks death in 2014 his artwork is exhibited, managed and conserved by his family.
