Josh CampbellArt Form(s):
Unearthing personal stories to explore our collective conscience.
I see my work as a snapshot of people, languages, cultural spaces, and ideas; a mediation of life, culture, and the resiliency of the human spirit.
My work as a performative journal that captures who I was, where I am on my journey, and what was around me, when I stumbled upon a question.
My work is about remembrance and testimony.
