Artist in Residence – Karli Campitelli

ARTIST IN RESIDENCE Karli Campitelli is an abstract painter and recent BFA graduate from Ottawa, Canada. Her work explores the relationships of colour through abstract forms using carefully chosen colour palettes to create blurred landscapes that give a sense of reflection. Certain colour combinations are employed to evoke emotion or personal association in the viewer. Her process consists of brushwork, scraping, wood burning, and carving. This is meant to create depth, causing engaging juxtapositions of varying opacity, transparency, and saturation. The result is an abstracted scene with an atmospheric quality and a centrality on colour. She is strongly influenced by nature, colour theory, and the Abstract Expressionism movement.
