About my artwork
Using diverse media I explore the possibility of a different reality. In creating unusual forms and textures I invite the audience to question our world and how we perceive it to be. I play with the human acceptance that what we are told is true or real. I like to provoke questions and a slight mistrust of the reality that fills the space around us. The idea of faith and truths as they exist in space and time are integral to my practice.

Reality is something that our society teaches us. Working with installation and mixed media I encourage thoughtful questioning of what seems to be. By altering the ordinary and filling unused or empty spaces, with bright colour and continuous forms I provoke questions. I invite the audience to consider what may occupy the space in-between places and therefore to see with new eyes.
Artists I like
Anish Kapoor, Cy Twombly, Jean Claud and Christo, Anthony Gormley, L.S. Lowry......
Centre of the artworld:
nowhere and everywhere

 

Reality is constantly questioned throughout Camilla’s work.  Why is life the way we see it?  Why does society accept what it is told?  Humanity tries to escape reality rather than question it.  Camilla encourages her audience to challenge and change reality so that there is no need to escape it.  If a person lives in a reality that they have made there is no need be confused and muted by drugs, work or trends.  Instead one is free to be fulfilled in day-to-day existence.

 

Camilla is fascinated by the sun, the eternal and all powerful provider.  She plays with colour and shape so that the subjects in her work seem to move and float above a platform, or around an object.

 

Often working with items unwanted by society, Camilla wonders, why do people seek to change their material lives?  Is it a means by which to escape or, in fact, a more sincere shift of their reality?  Camilla’s practice is to constantly question her reality and the standards by which she lives.  Each piece is a reflection of this.
