Mon-Sat 10-4 t 01654 703355 I first encountered Sue Campion's work at Nottingham Trent University in 1990 when I was scouting for a show of graduate art for Bonhams in London and was struck with its vivid colourism enough to include it in the show, so the commercial and institutional success she has enjoyed over the following three decades has always filled me with quiet pleasure. Elected to membership of the Royal Society of British Artists in 2007 I think the key to her success has been the full scale adoption of the pastel technique; often a rather fuddy duddy medium in English hands, Campion has obviously looked at French masters of the technique, the glowing colours of Redon in particular, and has adapted it to landscape as well as still life and flower subjects to great effect. Her latest show at T he Russell Gallery, of English and Spanish landscapes, shows just how pitch perfect she has become in rendering their very different tonalities.
