“Life is first a story.”
– G.K. Chesterton
“The human figure is my canvas to explore life’s stories.”
Antje Campbell uses the human figure in her sculptures, as a canvas to explore life’s complexities and celebrations. By creating strong, minimal forms that intersect, she communicates her themes, emotions and life experiences.
Working in clay has been Antje’s passion since early adulthood. She started her ceramic education under the mentorship of Betty Davenport Ford, an artist who was influential in the contemporary clay movement in Los Angeles in the 1950’s.
Antje holds a formal degree in Fashion Design from FIDM, which gives her the foundation for her use of color and form. Interpreting strong figurative forms in bronze has been a natural transition in her recent work.
Born in Stuttgart Germany, Antje was fortunate to be born into a family rich in artistic history. Her great Grandfather was employed by the local Duke of Saxony for his artistic talents which has trickled down through generations.
Antje’s sculptures have been represented by galleries in Europe and the US. Her work has also been awarded recognition in major shows and exhibitions.
