Eve Campbell graduated in Textile Design at The Glasgow School of Art in 2018, before setting up a print studio in Tighnabruaich in Argyll. From there she creates her textiles and ceramics, interpreting nature in abstract form. 

With an interest in creating surface pattern inspired by Scottish nature and architecture Eve creates printed wall hangings and textile prints, tiles and ceramics. She screen prints her wall hangings using hand-cut paper and stencils, a technique that means that each of her prints is unique.  

For the exhibtion at An Tobar Eve has decided to show three collections Trace, Wildwood and Cortili.

Trace and Wildwood are both based on her very close relationship with the landscape, capturing the colours, shapes and patterns of nature and human intervention on Scotland's West Coast.

 

During the period of lockdown in 2020 the exhibition was postponed for a year. Whilst confined to her flat in Glasgow at that time. Eve has developed a new collection of wall hangings titled Cortili (Italian for courtyards), for the exhibition.

 

At that time it was decided that the best way that An Tobar could support her as an artist, was to offer her a commission to produce a wall hanging to go on permanent display at An Tobar. For this piece Eve worked with Mull based photographer Carolyne Mazur to produce Crackaig which is an abandoned village at Treshnish. 

Carolyne, who has been farming on the West of Mull for twenty-five years, specialises in drone photography and in common with Eve has a deep connection to the landscape. Her exhibition Fangan at An Tobar will ran concurrently with Eve's.

The wall-hanging collections are one off prints. They are created through paper stencilling and screen printing and printed using water-based Eco Pigments onto 100% linen.
