The Bee Release is Coming Aug 4th!

I have been busy as a bee creating lots of new artwork and lovely treasures for my big Bee release August 4th, 9AM PST on Etsy Here! This is an extra special release because I’ve partnered with Planet Bee Foundation and am fundraising to sponsor a brand new hive for the School For The Arts in San Francisco! Proceeds from my Bee Release Aug 4th will go towards making this new hive possible, and help educate students who also love art and helping the environment! Planet Bee Foundation is a 501(c)3 environmental education nonprofit based in San Francisco. Through their school programs, corporate teambuilding workshops, and public education, Planet Bee hopes more people will care for our environment and take action to have a positive impact on our interconnected world. To learn more about the work they do, visit here.

And by supporting my Bee Release, you can help your local bee populations too! My Etsy coordinator Asami will be adding bee conservation-approved Bentley wildflower seed packets to the first 150 orders shipping inside the USA. Different countries internationally have different rules about importing things like seeds, so these wildflower seeds can go to addresses inside the USA. But if you want to help bees in your area too, check out your local bee conservation organizations for info on how to help!

I have new signed and limited edition prints coming to Etsy Here on Aug 4th 9AM PST. There’ll be signed prints of Lemon Drop, The Beekeeper, Trinity and Alveare. And I’ve made hand-embellished limited edition fine art prints of Queen Beeatrice, Alveare, and Trinity too! I added metallic gold embellishments to each one, in limited and artist proof editions of between 2, 3, 8, 11 and 13pcs only. These beauties are made on heavy archival 300gsm Entrada paper and come signed & numbered, and are each embellished to give them a special personal touch!

The metallic gold paint really pops in the light! It’s amazing as a detail for the honeycombs and adding a touch of sparkly magic to the prints.

I’ve made a brand new collection of original bee paintings too! These little buzzy, bumbly beauties are between 2-4″ in size and come framed. I’m so inspired by bees, as primary pollinators in our natural world, I wanted to make them all different colors. Even a rainbow spectrum one!

I had loads of fun painting these little cuties, and I hope you love them as much as I do! Since they’re smaller petite paintings, they’re a great way for more types of collectors or fans who are new to collecting original art to get an original artwork in their own collections. Each petite bee painting is one-of-a-kind though, and small originals usually find homes quickly, so be sure to check here right at 9AM PST on August 4th.

Vintage plate fans, rejoice! I’ve made a wonderful selection of new bee-themed printed vintage plates together with my artisan plate printer at Beatup Creations featuring my bee themed artworks! There will be a variety of plate sizes and prices, from little petite saucer sized plates, up to big magnificent vintage plates. Each one is truly one-of-a-kind and no plate can be replicated twice, so if you fall in love with one, check right at 9AM PST release time here to add yours to your own hive!

Look at this lovely little family of rainbow bee printed saucers! I had 10 matching saucers and now each one is one-of-a-kind featuring its own rainbow bee. So even if an original oil painting isn’t in your future, you can bring one of my super colorful little bumble-buddies home in a different way as a one-of printed plate!

Handmade necklaces, one-of-a-kind totes, and one-of apparel are joining my Bee Release August 4th at 9AM PST! Each piece will have only 1 in stock, so check Etsy early Aug 4th at 9AM for the most selection.

Can you even bee-lieve this amazing towel?!

These scarves are amazing! You’re going to love them even more in person. Each one is handmade and hand-cut in Canada, and is machine washable on cold (they like to be hang dried!). Supporting local businesses is really important to me, so by collecting one-of and hand-made goodies like these scarves, you’re helping local and small businesses too! Proceeds of all my Bee Release goodies are going towards sponsoring a new bee hive with Planet Bee Foundation in the School For The Arts in San Francisco, and USA orders will receive a packet of bee-conservation approved wildflowers to plant and help their local bees while supplies last. So let’s join together spreading love, education and art in support of the bees August 4th 9AM PST right here!

Camilla’s Rainbow Release Roundup

I’m so excited my Rainbow Release is almost here! I was inspired by my trip to Rome this month, it’s such a romantic and vibrant city, and I couldn’t help wanting to create artworks to express my joy for celebrating life and love! That’s why I’ve made new framed graphite drawings I’m including in my Rainbow Release tomorrow June 30, 9am on Etsy here.

I also made some lovely necklaces for release on Etsy tomorrow! I hand assembled each one and carefully chose each image to for each pendant frame. They’re a wonderful way to make art something wearable you can take with you day to day! Only one of each of these designs will release on Etsy June 30th at 9AM PST so snap up your favorite before it finds another home!

I’ve also made a small collection of one-of-a-kind vintage printed plates that will release ! Each one is a vintage plate that’s been printed on, and I carefully chose the artwork to compliment the plate design. There’s only 1 of each, so if there’s one you’re after, I suggest completing checkout with it right away before going back to shop for other less-limited goodies. Etsy shopping carts don’t hold the items on reserve, so it’s a race to finish checkout first. If you place another order afterwards, my Etsy coordinator Asami can help combine your shipments. 🙂

Also releasing tomorrow are a beautiful variety of tote bags! Many are one-of colorways, with strap+zipper color pairings I won’t make again! And I’m releasing some limited-run totes for folks to have more chances at a special bag. They’re double-sided and machine washable, and super strong! So don’t be afraid to use them and wash them! They’ll go live at 9am June 30th here.

There are also a handful of prints releasing for my Rainbow Release! Some are hand-signed, some aren’t, and some are super special Artist Proofs or retired prints! So make sure you read the descriptions carefully when you pick your favorites here on Etsy starting June 30th 9AM PST.

And as a special treat, 3 orders placed on June 30th for my Rainbow Release will get a bonus tiny art print with an original sketch on the back, made by me! I appreciate your support so much, and hope you love my Rainbow Release tomorrow June 30th at 9AM PST on Etsy Here!

Rainbow Release Coming June 30

 

It’s the most rainbowtastic month of the year! To celebrate Pride month, I’m putting together a collection of goodies for my Etsy that span the whole color spectrum, baby! My Rainbow Release is coming June 30th to The Camilla Store on Etsy Here, 9AM PST.

I’ve got a luscious collection of treasures that I hope you lovelies are a excited about as I am! I’ll release one-of-a-kind plates, original graphite artwork, hand-signed prints, one-of-a-kind and small run totebags, and more!

I have a very few one-of-a-kind vintage printed plates that will be available June 30th at 9AM pst! These usually find homes fast, so if you’d like to try and collect one, I suggest checking out the plate only right away. Putting items in the Etsy shopping cart doesn’t reserve them, they’re only confirmed once payment is confirmed, so best of luck! If you want to go back for more goodies that aren’t as limited, my Etsy Coordinator Asami can combine your orders if you message her afterwards.

One-Of and small run totes are coming! I’ll have a handful of one-of-a-kind designs, and if you aren’t able to nab one of those, I’ve made just 5ea of my Candy Escape painting series images in totes! These beauties are machine washable and super durable, so don’t be afraid to use them often!

Some prints are coming to my Rainbow Release too! You’ll be able to find prints of “Rainbow Roll”, “Pool of Tears”, “Puff” and more. They go live at 9am PST June 30, so mark your calendars!

Be sure to keep an eye open as more wonderful releases are revealed in the coming weeks! And follow @TheCamillaStore on twitter, instagram and Facebook Here for sneak peeks and all the news for The Rainbow Release June 30th 9AM on The Camilla Store on Etsy.

Timed Release Prints to Honor International Womens Day

This International Women’s Day I’m celebrating by baring it all! I’m making my painting “Kitty Titties” available as an 11×17” signed print, and “Nips” is releasing for the very first time as a 12×12″ limited edition timed release print! From 12AM PST (Midnight) March 8th to 12PM March 10th you can collect these beauties in celebration of International Women’s Day from my eStore here!

If you’ve been following my art for any amount of time, whether it’s been a week, or for years, I hope you’ve noticed by now that I never set out to offend or put anyone down with my artwork. Life should be fun! We should be able to share art, laughter, and love. And these are the moments that brought “Kitty Titties” into the world via my paintbrush. She is a painting I made to keep in mind that when the world tries to come down on you- about your gender, or what or how you create, or who you are, you can push back and do it with a smile!

“Nips” is a painting I created in 2013 (for my “Spilled Milk” exhibition collection!), in response to years of pressure and criticism I received for depicting the nude female body in my artwork. “Nips” was my way of saying that being offended by painted breasts is as ridiculous as breasts lactating rainbows. North America often misconstrues nudity for sexuality, a belief I do not share. I grew up surrounded by European art culture through my Italian heritage and learned to appreciate how beautiful life and the human form can be whether that’s male and female, we are equal! So I’m sharing my contribution to Women’s Day as not just a female artist, or as a woman, but as a person who truly believes we must stand together in support of each other to reach equality and harmony. It’s time to free the nipple people, appreciate art for arts sake and see women and men as equals!

I hope you love these vibrant rainbow beauties as much as I loved painting them, and join me in support of Women’s Day! You can pick up one, or both, on my eStore here from March 8-10.  I’ll be donating a portion of the proceeds of “Nips” prints sold to support both the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and Breast Cancer Research Foundation. After the order period closes I’ll print and sign them, so keep an eye open for shipping updates a few weeks after the timed release closes!

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.

Press Release:

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.

angelica-install1

img_7869-edit

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.

icarus-install1

the-soul-seeker-framed1

“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.
