Roma Cartoon Festival is held in the Guido Reni district, and will be open from 10am – 8pm June 23- 24 and 25. It’s held in the same building as my solo exhibition “Submerged” collection is on display through Dorothy Circus Gallery, so definitely go check out my original paintings too!

Paintings in Progress for Submerged Exhibition Dorothy Circus Gallery

 

Camilla has been a creative powderkeg for her upcoming “Submerged” exhibition! The show opens March 31th at Dorothy Circus Gallery in Rome, Italy. Here’s a look at what Camilla has been working on.

 

Some completed artworks have already been revealed! Camilla’s piece “Ajna” is an oil on wood panel painting measuring 12×12″.

Ajna and sister pieces from “Submerged” are Camilla’s first forays into full monochrome painting elements. Camilla shares some thoughts and feelings behind Ajna’s creation:
This painting is all about human perception and our role in nature. I believe we are as much as part of the earth as all the other fauna and animals, yet we don’t always see it. We need to open our third eye and truly appreciate what we are a part of and how we affect the planet.  The colors of her eyes are secondary colors because we tend to put the earth’s life second to our needs.  I believe human beings are amazing and capable of so much. Our greatest assets are compassion and intelligence which is why I wanted to show so much emotion in her. Earth is a beautiful world that is rich in color and life that should be treasured!

“Capuchina” joins the collection for Camilla’s “Submerged” exhibition! Capuchina is an 8×10″ oil on wood panel painting. It’s been some time since Camilla incorporated painting skulls into the composition of her artworks! Long time Camilla fans may remember skulls appearing in Camilla’s “Vain Remains” collection of 2009.

New Paintings For Submerged Exhibition at Dorothy Circus Gallery

Camilla has been painting up a storm for her new “Submerged” Exhibition opening at Dorothy Circus Gallery in Rome, March 31th! Camilla has a collection of 6 new paintings underway. Let’s take a look at some of their progress.

This new painting, “Fishbowl”, includes Camilla’s first ever Seabunny to appear in one of her paintings! Have you seen Seabunnies before? Google them! You won’t regret it!

We can see clues on Camilla’s palette that she was working on “Ajna”. Camilla and Dorothy Circus Gallery revealed the final image for Ajna recently. Camilla shares some thoughts about “Ajna”:
This painting is all about human perception and our role in nature. I believe we are as much as part of the earth as all the other fauna and animals, yet we don’t always see it. We need to open our third eye and truly appreciate what we are a part of and how we affect the planet.  The colors of her eyes are secondary colors because we tend to put the earth’s life second to our needs.  I believe human beings are amazing and capable of so much. Our greatest assets are compassion and intelligence which is why I wanted to show so much emotion in her. Earth is a beautiful world that is rich in color and life that should be treasured!

Camilla’s painting “Capuchina” has been revealed! These colorful skulls are a playful take on a usually macabre subject.

Camilla will be unveiling a new,  large size oil painting, “La Madre” for Submerged exhibition. This piece measures 20×24″, larger than many of Camilla’s contemporary artworks. She will be a show-stopper for sure!
