De Camille

A native Angeleno, De Camille attended the Lycee Francais at age six and went on to study art and fashion at the Paris American Academy and the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris where she had a one-woman sell-out show in Montmartre. The world of the French Cabaret has continued to inspire her work. There is a sense of the collector and traveler in her work having lived abroad for five years. From the Caribbean islands of Montserrat and Grenada to Paris and Bath UK, she takes from the past to update it through her unique and quirky lens. A strong theme in her work is the iconic female form. For ten thousand years we have been haunted and inspired by the dazzling mother/ goddess/ temptress/ angel. Her work is a synthesis of Pop Culture through a dream-like state; her technique is layered. It may start with the collaging of a Blue Print and images to set the scene or create the impressions for the structure of the work. She experiments with various mediums to create altered states of texture such as; saw dust, paint medium; egg yolk; tea bags; paper; found objects.


Bisous,
