Holly Johnson Gallery is pleased to present, Todd Camplin: CALM & storm, an exhibition of new ink drawings on paper and clayboards. The exhibition, the artist’s third solo show with the gallery, opens October 10th and continues through December 19th, 2020. An open house will be held Saturday, October 17th, from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. Twenty drawings are on view in an online gallery.
Todd Camplin’s ink drawings are as dense as they are weightless. Often taking months to complete, the painstaking process involves the repetition of small words, letters, and marks evocative of highly detailed maps and textiles. They perfectly capture his signature style in delicate and labor-intensive imagery. His compositions use language such that names, or other text, forms the basis for the abstractions. What can be called lines of text, or streams or strings, flow and repeat themselves in compelling patterns that he expertly renders in free form shapes.
