GRAVIS FOOTWEAR PRESENTS: ON THE ROAD TO UMMMM
Video of the THOMAS CAMPBELL EXHIBITION
At THE V1 GALLERY (Copenhagen, Denmark)
Gravis Footwear is pleased to announce the final chapter in the Thomas Campbell Exhibition, UMMMM with the release of the video, ON THE ROAD TO UMMMM.
The video is a time lapsed sequence of Campbell, shot on location in his Bonny Doon, California studio and in Europe. It gives a behind-the-scenes preview of Thomas working on “stuff” for 3 months or so… in preparation of the Ummm, exhibit which was held in Copenhagen, Denmark at the V1 Gallery, late October 2009.
On the Road to Ummmm, gives an insider view of Thomas’s many artistic talents; painting, sewing, woodwork, silk-screening, bronze casting, doodling and um…more painting. But it’s not all work for Campbell, a quick stop-over in the south of France, revives this self-proclaimed stuff maker’s skills before he says “au revoir,” and onto his exhibit in Denmark.
Watch for the first collaboration; The Yar bag launching in Fall/Winter 2010.
On the Road to Ummm, was directed, produced, shot and edited by Alex Kopps, a friend and fellow artist of Campbell’s.
