Iain Campbell: reflections on an artist's life and times

 

Few artists have turned their gaze fixedly on the modern town of Alice Springs and how its settler population lives within it. This is the fine contribution of Scottish artist Iain Campbell who arrived here in 1975. An exhibition at Araluen, Reflections, brings together work from across the decades around this theme, which the artist pursues to this day. The show also takes in enough of the other strands of Campbell's oeuvre to give some sense of the breadth of his achievement, evoked so well in the opening speech by MIKE GILLAM, artist photographer and long time friend, which we publish here (in extended version).
