Todd Camplin: Contain Me opens May 16 at Holly Johnson


Contain Me is a solo exhibition of recent drawings by Todd Camplin at Holly Johnson Gallery. Opening reception is on May 16th from 6 to 9 pm.

Several years back, I came across some of my old package design books. I looked though these books with fond memories of my times as an undergraduate in graphic design. I began testing the idea in a few small sketches, but I put it aside for a while. Recently, I picked these books back up and began placing them as my center piece to my drawings. I use my text elements to flow in and out of the package designs. The flat foldouts of these packages contained my drawings. After several drawings with box designs, I dropped the box element for just my text shapes. I expanded my technique from paper to claybord. Then I came to the conclusion that I should attempt to completely fill the page with my designs. I once again tested my process and then I created several filled drawings that were fully contained on the paper. Each drawing concept lead to another concept and all spawned from my package design templates. website:
