“The openness of everything can be paralyzing, and it is human nature to look for walls and barriers to push against. Walls help us to know where we are, and what we have; once recognized, we can then begin our work of flourishing and creating within them.” – Campbell

Scott Campbell’s latest exhibition opens today in LA where he has explored the novel objects that are created together to make tattoo machines in Mexican prisons. Illustrating this idea through painting these machines with ink on paper, the famed tattooer and owner of Saved humorous title ‘Things get Better’ alludes to the unexpected nature of collaborating inanimaite objects into another more optimistic focus.
