Scott Campbell: Out of This World Good
By Sade Lythcott
Tattoo artist turned fine artist Scott Campbell is set to debut his new work in London in an exhibit entitled THEY SAY MIRACLES ARE PAST. With a series of 15 pieces, which confuse two-dimensional and three-dimensional distinction, Campbell suspends carvings of nearly photographic lunar landscapes, defaced with scat, in dense pours of resin. Scott says:
“They say miracles are past – it mourns the passing of mystery. We work so hard to know how things work, but once we know, we can’t unknow. Sometimes I think the mystery was worth more than the knowing”.
Jauretsi and I had the privilege of seeing the works in person before they shipped off and they were literally out of this world good! The exhibit takes place at OHWOW Gallery in London from October 4 - October 14, 2012.
