The Saddest Place On Earth

Серия: "-"

A BEAUTIFUL COLLECTION OF THE ACCLAIMED CALIFORNIA PAINTER'S WORK Garcia's work serves as a looking glass into the everyday violence that supports the current power structure. Camille Rose Garcia's world is a beautiful place. It is the ballroom of an Empire, a forest of aquamarine jewels, a place where cream-layered cakes, crystal castles and opiate abundance serve to sedate the masses. But as the telescope retracts, the glossy veneer of privilege falls away to reveal another reality. Garcia's work examines ideas of decadence, deception and denial explored within the context of Empire.

Camille Rose Garcia

Biography

Camille Rose Garcia received her Master of Fine Arts Degree at University of California at Davis in 1994 and her BFA from Otis College of Art and Design in 1992.

She has built a body of work that has been exhibited at the Merry Karnowsky Gallery (Los Angeles and Berlin), the Grand Central Art Station (CSU, Fullerton) in Los Angeles, the Roq la Rue Gallery in Seattle, and the Jonathan LeVine Gallery [ [http://www.jonathanlevinegallery.com/ Jonathan LeVine Gallery] ] in N.Y.C. Often using narrative and fairytale, Garcia’s depictions of cartoon children living in wastelands comment on the failures of capitalism. Her works examine themes of decadence and denial. Garcia says about her work, “the Earth is older than humans and will rebound, but the fate of our species seems to be precarious at best. I try to be positive and use humor in my work, even while knowing this.” Fact|date=February 2008

Garcia's work has appeared in "Modern Painters, Juxtapoz, Rolling Stone, Flaunt," and "Blab!" magazines. Fact|date=February 2008

She also contributed work to ohGr's second album, SunnyPsyOp.

She has published three books, "The Saddest Place on Earth," (Last Gasp, 2006), "The Magic Bottle: A BLAB! Storybook," (Fantagraphics, 2006) and "Tragic Kingdom " (Last Gasp, 2007).

Her work also appears in the permanent collections of LACMA and the San Jose Museum of Art.

Critical reception

Paula Rogers, a KQED-FM art critic and self-styled fan of Camille Rose Garcia, reviewed Garcia’s mid-career retrospective, "Tragic Kingdom: The Art of Camille Rose Garcia at the San Jose Museum of Art":

“Garcia’s pretty pictures (lack) specific meaning and specific context…their insistent vagueness, smugness, blanket pronouncements, lack of nuance and grating self-righteousness add up to a static portrait / shallow response to something complex: "I get it; things are bad". It's disappointing to find out that the impetus for these works isn't skillful.” [http://www.kqed.org/arts/visualarts/index.jsp?id=17680]
