Artist Lee Campbell

An unusual collection of science-based oil paintings, photos and sculptures will be exhibited at the National Physical Laboratory in Twickenham London as part of National Science Week.

Artist Lee Campbell is currently artist in residence at the NPL and has had the freedom to explore materials under the microscope and capture the scientific projects in paint.

“It has been fascinating seeing the beauty in everyday materials such as rust, sponges and metallic waste from the work shop, says Lee. “ It is amazing how something as destructive as rust can be so attractive.”

Image range from steel with oxidation using electron back scattered diffraction, to scans of artificial sponge using a laser on an Olympus microscope, to paintings of research on sono-luminescence.

There are 20 pieces in the series including works on paper, panel and canvas which will be on sale at the Open Day on 11th March. A selection of images can be seen at leecampbell. Visitors are most welcome to the show but pre-registration is needed. To attend please RSVP to: or call: 020 8943 6447

The show will continue at the MacKenzie Gallery, High St. Teddington: from 16th March. In keeping with the aim of making science more accessible the paintings are priced at approximately £ 300, and are suitable for home, office and public spaces.

Lee Campbell’s work has been exhibited internationally. and will be shown at the Biennale in Venice in December.
