Description

J.R. holds a B.S. in Environmental Design and Master of Fine Arts degree in Textile Art and Costume Design from the University of California at Davis. He conducts his research/creative activity in digital capture, image development and surface application to textile art and design as an associate professor in Textiles and Clothing at Iowa State University. He explores the visual, cultural and technological aspects of digital textile printing as he creates connections between two-dimensional print design and three-dimensional forms. He regularly shows artwork in national and international juried exhibitions.

J.R. Campbell states:"As a human culture, we are each in contact with textiles at almost every moment of our lives. Textile concepts have become inherent in our way of thinking and patterns of speech (ie., the Ãƒà ™string theory of the universeÃƒà œ, Ãƒà ™hanging by a threadÃƒà œ, the Ãƒà ™moral fabricÃƒà œ of the country, etc). Textiles are an excellent medium for the expression of identity and transmission of new ideas. We can attach imagery to the surface of cloth and instantly give the image new meaning. We begin to associate with the image, perhaps wear it, walk through it as it is draped in a passageway. We might see it as having a spiritual significance, a functional purpose or an expressive or symbolic ability."
