Cressida Campbell

Cressida Campbell is best known for her incredibly detailed woodblocks and unique woodblock prints depicting scenes of domestic interiors and Australian landscapes as well as still lifes. Starting with a detailed line drawing on board, Campbell engraves the linework to create a woodblock. She ‘colours in’ the carved woodblock with layers of watercolour paint, then delicately dampens the entire board with water to create a single print on Stonehenge paper. Campbell’s innovative and painstaking technique results in two unique artworks—a single painted and engraved woodblock, and a one-off woodblock print on paper. Her lush and densely layered works are unmistakable and highly collectable.

Since studying painting and drawing at East Sydney Technical College (now known as the National Art School) in Sydney and woodblock printing at the Yoshida Hanga Academy in Tokyo, Campbell has exhibited extensively throughout Australia as well as in London, Hong Kong, Norway and Poland. She has won numerous awards and held prestigious residencies, including the Pring Prize and the Trustees' Watercolour Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, as well as the Australia Council for the Arts Verdaccio Studio Residency in Italy. Campbell’s work is held in prestigious public collections in Australia and internationally, including at the National Gallery of Australia, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Artbank and the British Museum in London. Her work is held in private collections in Australia, the UK, the USA and Monaco.
