It's the final week of Shawn Camp's exhibition at Gallery Shoal Creek. The rugged terrain of Iceland served as his inspiration, after his recent return from an artist residency at the creative center in Stöðvarfjörður, Iceland, an experience that took him in a new direction with a series of works on paper. They reflect his ongoing interest in linear forms, geometric references and reflective surfaces, playing with both light and color.
