Dallas Art Fair: Online

Tammi Campbell, Neil Raitt, Sarah Ann Weber

April 14 - 23, 2020

Anat Ebgi is pleased to present new works by Tammi Campbell, Sarah Ann Weber, and Neil Raitt for Dallas Art Fair Online.

Made entirely from acrylic paint—including the bubble wrap, tape, and cardboard—Tammi Campbell’s paintings are perfectly packed stand-ins for their respective originals. Taking trompe l’oeil painting to its hyperrealistic extreme, Campbell’s work literally envelopes, secures, and mummifies historical paintings; it asks viewers to ponder what is valued, paying homage to the past, while simultaneously taking it hostage.

Sarah Ann Weber works primarily with watercolor and colored pencil on paper. Focusing on floral, exotic, and invented organic forms, she bestows her compositions with a distinct sense of psychedelic color, pattern, and dreaminess. Frequently veering into abstraction, Weber explores unstable boundaries of growth, entropy, figure, and ground, intertwining these compositions with personal narratives as well as historical photographs.

Neil Raitt composes paintings of endlessly repeated cabins, mountains, ponds, trees, and motifs inspired by nature. Dispersing with any sense of perspective, his intricate patterns suspend the atmospheric effects of landscape and illusions of space. Addressing notions of kitsch, romanticism, abstraction, and painting in the digital age, Raitt’s labyrinthine patterning leads viewers to an otherworldly infinity in search of the miraculous.
