Strewnfield: New Work by Thomas Campbell
January 24 - April 5, 2015 / Curated by Jennifer Gately
Artist and filmmaker Thomas Campbell is internationally known for his artwork combining colorful renderings of figurative characters against bold graphic backdrops and a vocabulary of positive affirmations scrawled in a unique stylistic hand that often results in profound and inspiring views of human nature. Featuring a range of the artist’s creative output, this exhibition includes a large-scale wall panel, intricate paper quilts, and new bronze sculptures in various forms of completion that will allow Museum visitors to learn about the different stages of bronze casting. The artist will also re-create his sewing room, complete with the incredible mountains of paper used as source materials in his unique sewn paper compositions. Thomas Campbell is a self-taught painter, sculptor photographer, and filmmaker. He splits his time between his studio in Bonny Doon, California, and traversing the globe making highly acclaimed films. His fine art has appeared in solo exhibitions in cities round the world including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Paris, Tokyo, and Copenhagen. Campbell is also a respected voice in the contemporary surf and skateboard scenes.
