Codice d’Errico Preview

Here we are! One week to go until the show opens!  Even though you’ve seen images of the paintings, you haven’t seen them framed and my oh my are they stunning with their frames!  The paintings are even more beautiful, IMO, and I can’t wait for those lucky people who will be in Rome, to see them with their own eyes!

Remember that the opening is June 5th at Mondo Bizzarro in Rome, Italy at 6:30 pm!

Solo Show Announcement: “Il Codice d’Errico”

Codice d'Errico..

Codice d'Errico Title

It has been a long time, almost two years since my first solo show, and I am very happy to share my latest body of work in my first European solo show titled, “Il Codice d’Errico” at Mondo Bizzarro Gallery, Rome, opening June 5th.

..

These 12 paintings are unlike anything I’ve ever created before. The show is an expression of two passions: my Italian heritage and my Helmetgirls.  I studied the greatest master of Italian art, Leonardo Da Vinci, and while his machines inspire many paintings, in others I was able to create inventions of my own, thanks to what I learned from him.

..

However the show is not just about fancy cogs and flying machines, it’s an expression of my own interests, love, fantasy, emotions and decisions. Many of these paintings are based on personal triumphs and setbacks. Though subtle, I wanted to use visual themes to reveal secrets and hold up mirrors to others and myself.

..

I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and present myself in black and white, shedding the richness of a color palette and replacing it with a stark and naked face of line work and detail.

..

Every girl, every Helmet, and every element has meaning on its own, and within the context of the painting itself. Like Da Vinci, I’m proud to present my own “code”, my Codice d’Errico. And I couldn’t be happier that it is all being unveiled in Italy!

For previews, pricing and purchase of the paintings, please contact: Mondo Bizzarro, Luisa Montalto, +39-06-44247451, info@mondobizzarrogallery.com.  For any press, interview or other questions, please contact me at cderricoinfo@gmail.com

..

I also invite you to come to Rome for the opening, on June 5th. I will be there, and I hope many people can come see these paintings in person, meet me and share this momentous occasion.

Thank You,

Camilla

Rome’s Helmetgirls

Here are a couple of snapshots from the paintings for the solo show in Rome. I’ve decided on a name, but I’m holding out on officially releasing it until the gallery, Mondo Bizzarro, has announced the show.  I know, I tease, but it’ll be worth it!

For now, here are some snapshots I’ve taken of a few of the paintings.  Not good shots, just with my iPhone, but I wanted to share!

2010 HERE WE COME!

Hi! Did everyone have a great Christmas?!  And did you celebrate the New Year with friends galore?!  Taking a short break to enjoy friends and family was just what I needed!

Let me tell you what the general plan is for 2010, because it is already jam-packed with comics, paintings, toys, conventions, and goodies.  We’ve changed the EVENTS CALENDAR on the website. You can now find it under the BLOG on the left as its own category.  Bookmark this site so you always know what’s coming up!  All the event info, and more is on the Fanpage too.

PAINTINGS – This year I’ve got a solo show in Rome, which opens June 5th.  The gallery is called Mondo Bizzarro and I’m going to be at the opening.  I’ll be painting an entire collection of Helmetgirls.  Between now and then there are a few other shows going on: the first is the HE MAN show at Gallery 1988 LA. This one opens on January 8th. I wish I could be there!  I’ve posted the work in progress shots here.  I’ve also got a few pieces for a special show at the Ayden Gallery in Vancouver, that opens February 13th, right as the Olympics take over the city.  The show is an all-Canadian, all-BC group with me, Peter Taylor, Ben Tour and Lani Imre.  I’m going to explore nature and culture a little more in depth with these paintings.

COMICS – Sky Pirates finishes with issue 5 in January. The series has been grueling to draw, but also fun. I’ve poured my heart and soul into it, and you can tell by the detail in the images. 2010 will be the year of Tanpopo 3 & 4, as well as some cover art coming for Elephantmen, Cloudscape, and of course, Little Red Riding Hood for Fractured Fables (Silverline).  I’m also working on a top secret graphic novel project that I hope to soon tell the world about!

CONVENTIONS: This year you’ll see me, Nancy and my merchandise all over the countries (Canada/US)! We’re hitting 15 conventions, including San Diego Comic Con with a booth in the dealer’s room! Oh yes, moving UP.  We’ve got a ton of great stuff coming, including the new line of clothing, a new postcard set from Last Gasp, new art cards and new prints, as well as something truly special – Jewelry! Stay tuned for more!

I’m looking forward to 2010, and all that it will bring. I especially look forward to meeting everyone that’s out there, and who supports me in everything I do.

All the best to you for 2010. It’s gonna be epic ^_^
