Currently reading : Scott Campbell in St Moritz
Via Serlas 22
7500 St. Moritz
From Thursday February 20th St. Mortiz’s Galerie Gmurzynska presents the second solo exhibition by New York artist and Sang Bleu contributor Scott Campbell entitled The Smartest Things I Ever Did Were Foolish Things for Love.
Following his recent marriage to filmmaker, screen writer and actress Lake Bell, Campbell was inspired to make an entirely new body of work for the exhibition, including site specific elements, as ‘Love Statements’ to mark the occasion. Known primarily, tattoo aside, for his multi media works, most notably conceiving a format of relief carvings in stacks of U.S. currency, the artist goes back to more traditional media including watercolour and sculpture.
A catalogue of the works will be published with accompanying essays by American painter Elizabeth Peyton and art writer Neville Wakefield, who recently co-curated large-scale site specific exhibition Elevation1049 currently taking over the Swiss town of Gstaad.
Campbell will be present for the exhibition’s opening at the gallery’s Via Serlas location.
