Crampton's Collection

1 Rooms
By portraying everyday objects in a realistic style, the common becomes nostalgic and humorous. Crampton is in a conversation with classical painters who treated their animal portraits with romanticism to sentimentalism to kitsch. She starts directly on canvas with a brush sketch, and then builds up the painting layer by layer, using a glazing technique to depict her imagery. The key color stripes are included to kill the illusion of space and to add a musical rhythm.

    Crampton creates still life paintings, often including a sentient animal gazing at the viewer. The arrangement echoes classical hunting scenes but modern elements provide a commentary on contemporary life and its detritus. Lately, the work has taken on a more unconcious, dream-like quality.
