“Camilla’s Girls” are unusually stunning, doe-eyed and magnificently colorful female characters. Beneath the exterior beauty, you come face-to-face with an image reminiscent of something that you can’t define. Look a little closer, not with your eyes but with your soul, and you will realize that you are looking at a reflection of yourself.
Camilla’s Girls capture and express that complexity, richness and mystery that characterize all women. They are beyond cute; they are subtly erotic, beguilingly sexy, and deceptively innocent. Each girl is exposed to the watchful eyes, admiration’s and even judgments of the public. Despite being observed, caught in that moment’s emotions, she never flinches, never hints at anything but an underlying poise and dignity. She may seem naive and fragile, but she has an underlying confidence and strength, which says, “You can look, but you can’t touch – unless I tell you to”.
A distinguishing trait of Camilla’s paintings is that each girl is different, you never know what her next girl will express. Will it be vanity, playfulness, caring, desire, excitement, longing, curiosity, lust, surprise, sadness” In the myriad emotions that can be felt when observing Camilla’s paintings, there is one common characteristic: intensity. This intensity is forged from the primal femininity of each girl, as she grabs you and pulls you closer. You are riveted and intrigued, starving for more of the emotions so openly conveyed through the expressions of a girl.
