I’ve arrived in Rome for my Submerged exhibition! It feels so good to be back in such an exhilarating, beautiful and culture-filled city. I can’t help but be inspired! My newest collection for “Submerged”, opening at Dorothy Circus Gallery on the 31st, is being hung. Look at these exquisite frames!
It’s not too late to email firstname.lastname@example.org for original artwork inquiries for Submerged. The opening reception will be held March 31.
I’ve created a small collection of beautiful printed vintage plates, available exclusively through Dorothy Circus Gallery for my Submerged exhibition!

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!

Camilla’s Masquerade Solo Exhibition collection is on view at Haven Gallery in Newport, NY! View Camilla’s body of work in person until November 27th, and online here.
Northport, NY–Haven Gallery is honored to present “Masquerade” a solo exhibition of new paintings and drawings by Canadian artist Camilla d’Errico. “Masquerade” is d’Errico’s first solo show with the gallery and will include eight paintings and eight drawings and 3 framed palettes. “Masquerade” is a distinctively exciting body of work featuring the artist’s quintessentially expressive, anime inspired gamines playfully hiding behind a series of animal and fantasy inspired disguises. The portraits featured in “Masquerade” are surrealistically rendered yet sensibly calculated to reveal the emotional complexities and idiosyncrasies of both d’Errico and the soul present in each and every one of us.
Appearing jovial and lighthearted upon first glance, d’Errico’s archetypally endearing girls may hark back to the nostalgia of our childhood and to our grand sense of imagination as minors. Yet in contrast, looking closer, the many masks and identities we must take on as adults in various aspects of our lives echoes strongly through d’Errico’s use of suggestive facial expressions and gesticulations. A predominant emotion of pensive contemplation can be noted through prolifically parted lips and reflective hand gestures capturing a brief moment of vulnerability and inquisition we so often encounter through our psychological and physiological evolutions.
“Masquerade” plays with the viewer through a paradoxical juxtaposition of reality and fantasy. By combining elements of emotion, pattern and pop culture, d’Errico subtly comments on the amalgamation of influences and personalities unique to each of us as individuals. Despite this masquerade, our many layers and individuality may not be sequestered entirely. d’Errico’s eponymous kaleidoscopic pools of color and drips may attest to the complexity and uniqueness that make up our person. These specific striations and patterns brilliantly capture our attention just as quickly as the visual acumen of each mask which in this case, may echo d’Errico’s own wellsprings of inspiration. Homages to anime and manga, American comics, mythology and folklore are readily apparent through the use of tongue-in-cheek titles and notable influences commonly referenced through d’Errico’s seasoned career as a fine artist. “Masquerade” plays with our personal stimuli as they shape our discrete souls. Who we wish to be may already be a part of who we are or who we will be one day.
Haven Gallery is located at 155 Main St., The Carriage House Square, Suite 4, in Northport, NY 11768
