Campbell is an exuberant figure painter with an intense creative imagination. He is an improviser, working quickly and allowing the composition to develop, inventing and altering elements as he goes along. 'Mountaineer Finds Jewellery in Highland Glen' is an early work, executed just after he graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1982. His later works are full of a complex esoteric symbolism. They are populated by imaginary characters in imaginary and somewhat nonsensical situations, their arcane titles having only a passing relevance to the painting.
