Thomas Campbell is a self-taught painter, sculptor, photographer, and filmmaker. He splits his time between his painting, sewing, sculpture, and stuff-making studio in Bonny Doon, California and traversing the globe making films and taking part in different art situations. Campbell was prominently featured in the ground-breaking touring exhibition (2003-2008) Beautiful Losers and also the subsequent book and film. From UMMMM to DER reveals Campbell's art-making process over a two year period between mid-2009 through mid-2011, unveiling a deep and expansive look into the ongoing refinement of his craft, with vivid well-documented images of recent paintings, drawings and sculptures. This finely produced monograph captures Campbell at home in the studio as well as out and about producing solo shows and installations around the world in Copenhagen, Sydney, Melbourne, Sao Paulo and San Francisco.
