West Coast painter Rebecca Campbell left her Mormon roots and a naÔve sense of the art world behind in Utah when she headed off to art school in Oregon. But it didnít take long for Campbell to trade the security blanket of her religion for the trappings of feminism as she started to explore themes that took on more social relevancy. Campbellís paintings are sometimes reflective of a rural past, but donít be fooled by the wasp in a jar. Campbellís work is quite varied and the sexual imagery in her paintings can be quite graphic, no doubt due to time spent hanging around strip clubs.
