About

Sally Camp’s work deals with memories recalling the presence of a loved one.  Her work serves as a personal narrative on the passage of time and the journey taken.

 

She writes, “What evidence is there of a person’s existence after the passage of time?  A young man’s handwriting on a page in a book,  a dusty notebook from a soldier about to go to the battlefield, a photograph of a grandmother and her children gathered on a summer day fifty years ago. Some memories come back and some are mysterious.  I am curious about these people and some of the events of their lives.  What do time and loss erase and what remains?”

 

In Camp’s paper lithography and collagraph series, she sources her imagery from scraps of paper, old books stored in a basement, boxes of forgotten items from the back of a closet, items that an elderly parent had directed to be thrown in the trash bin. The work brings significance to  the memories and serves as proof of existence, whether of a person or a place. 

 

Camp’s abstract and linear work suggests aerial views of landscapes; sprawling branches and twigs, twisting river lines and cracks in the earth. She is scanning the landscape from above, looking for pathways and trying to get her bearings. Time and loss can change the landscape, but paths may still be there.

 

As with pieces of a puzzle, Camp searches for small memories. Memory is what remains after loss.  Without a record of that; a photograph, old journal, or body of artwork, there would be no evidence.
