Scott Campbell’s multi-layered paper cut sculptures juxtaposing traditional symbols with US currency cleverly explore the intersection of art and commerce. Employing a laser-cutter, Campbell precisely renders intricate designs in stacks of real US dollar bills. With ominous undertones and allusions to inescapable change and decay, Campbell references vanitas themes and memento mori objects found in 17th Century Dutch religious paintings as explicit reminders of the emptiness of earthly pleasure. Campbell’s dramatic, evocative sculptures reflect the artist’s broad interrogation of the transitory nature of life, particularly the role of money as a corrupting influence upon artistic value.

After abandoning a career as a biochemist at the University of Texas, Campbell fled to San Francisco, and began tattooing. In recent years, he has gained recognition from fine art communities worldwide for his work in mediums beyond tattoos, including carved sculptures, watercolor paintings, and graphite drawings on the insides of eggshells. His work has been exhibited internationally, and resides in prominent private collections worldwide.
