About this artwork

This painting’s enigmatic title refers to the Swiss psychiatrist Hermann Rorschach (1884-1922), famous for the inkblots he created as a tool for psychiatric testing. While Campbell’s titles may suggest a narrative, his surreal and often humorous works frequently resist straightforward interpretation.
