Rebecca Campbell's solo show 'Poltergeist'
Eight years ago Rebecca Campbell had the distinction of being signed on by Peter Goulds, director of L.A. Louver, shortly after she got her MFA from UCLA –- thus joining one of the city’s most prestigious art galleries.
“I responded to her work enthusiastically,” Goulds recalls. “She displayed immense technical prowess far beyond her years. I was also attracted by her interdisciplinary work, the interest she had in sculpture and performance.”
Now the gallery is mounting a solo show of hers called "Poltergeist": paintings, sculpture, installation and film around the subject of childhood and family. Scarlet Cheng visited her in her L.A. gallery; their conversation is featured in Sunday's Arts & Books section.
