Bramble Patch. Acrylic on canvas. 11" x 12". Marcer Campbell, 2009
Marcer Campbell's work for the Nail Factory exhibition consisted predominantly of landscape-based painting, themed loosely around the concept of everyday subject matter, not obviously leant to formal, figurative composition.
In Marcerís own words, "I wanted to produce a series of paintings, of places and objects people may often come across, but overlook, in their day to day lives. The forgotten, overgrown corner of a back garden; an old disused outbuilding with attendant debris; the things we pass by or take for granted as something ordinary and not worth a second glance. For me, these places can evoke their own peculiar beauty and have their own particular story to tell."
