Past Exhibitions

Web of Stars - Solo Exhibition

Corey Helford Gallery - Los Angeles, CA

February 23 - March 30, 2019

Camille Rose Garcia’s “Web of Stars” is a collection of 14 small and intimate paintings musing on the connection of all things creating the universe simultaneously. This interconnectedness of the Universe, from the largest planets to the tiniest insects, and how every piece of the universe is involved in creating the magic of itself has become a primary focus lately of Garcia’s work. From Maya, the weaver of the Universe, we get the symbolism of the Spider weaving a web that connects all living things, the web representing the patterns and vibration. This body of work also continues Garcia’s exploration of Music and Space and the relationship of sound to form.

The palette of the paintings is limited to greens, blues, and blacks, to represent the force of life (green and blues) forming itself out of the blackness of space. These are also the colors of night, the colors of dreams, and the colors of intuition. Animal symbols and Planetary Deities work together on the weaving together of the Universe. In “Neptune Transmitter,” Despina, the embodiment of one of the 13 moons of Neptune, calls forth the other moons, arranging them in orbit around the ice planet.

The Wonderful World Of Dr. Deekay - Solo Exhibition

Corey Helford Gallery - Los Angeles, CA

May 12 - June 16, 2018

Corey Helford Gallery is proud to premiere The Wonderful World of Dr. Deekay by Camille Rose Garcia on Saturday, May 12 in the Main Gallery. The massive showcase will premiere 10 new paintings, dozens of illustrations, puppets, a stop-motion animated film and a new mural on the gallery’s wall based on her long-awaited illustrated book “The Cabinet of Dr. Deekay,” a dystopian horror fairytale that will be published this summer in conjunction with the exhibit.

The world of Dr. Deekay is a surreal psychedelic commentary on our modern world inspired by the real-life dental horror Camille endured over seven years ago. During a one week period, Garcia had to undergo 11 root canals, a full mouth reconstruction, gum surgery, and finally a bad reaction to an anti-anxiety pill that created frightening hallucinations and the inspiration for this story. The book follows young Alex Winchester after he wakes up in a strange hospital and parts of himself missing—his introduction to a dystopian new world in which everyone is systematically “rearranged.”

In the tradition of Orwell, Huxley, and Roald Dahl, Garcia carefully blends humor and horror to create a singular world reflecting our own reality—life in an invisible asylum of pharmaceuticals, consumerism, and consumption that’s destroying the earth, our oceans, our bodies and our psyches.

The Wonderful World of Dr. Deekay olo show will guide viewers through key parts of the story with concept art and illustrations from the book itself. But the show expands the universe far beyond the 200-page book, with ten new paintings on wood exclusive to the Corey Helford exhibit, highlighting characters, settings and major moments in the story, such as Alex’s operations and first meeting characters during the adventure. s Camille finally premieres the first chapter in her “Dr. Deekay” universe, she is also entering a new chapter of her creative career. This stop-motion video being featured in this exhibit will mark her first foray into the medium, despite the fact that she originally sought to become an animator before ever entering art school. It’s being produced in collaboration with Mark Meunier, best known for his work in “James and the Giant Peach” and “Coraline.”

The opening reception for The Wonderful World of Dr. Deekay will be hosted aturday, May 12 from 7pm - 11pm in the Main Gallery at Corey Helford Gallery. The reception is open to the public and the exhibit will be on view through June 16.


The Ballrooms of Mars - Solo Exhibition

Dorothy Circus Gallery Museum of Rome - Rome, Italy

February 24 - April 7, 2018

Dorothy Circus Gallery inaugurates 2018 with the brand new solo show by Camille Rose Garcia, entitled The Ballrooms of Mars. This exhibition introduces a new cycle dedicated to the six prime movers of Pop Surrealism, presented in London last October 2017, who will now display a series of original solo shows in our Roman premises.

Based in Los Angeles, California, Garcia stands out as one of the most renowned and beloved pop surrealist artists worldwide. She produces paintings, prints and sculptures in a gothic, “horror” cartoonish style, which release a sense of adorability and inherent creepiness. For her debut with Dorothy Circus Gallery, Garcia proposes a series of 16 unique works that refer to her influences and primordial inspirations (mysteries of Nature, music, art), but most importantly is inspired by her new researches.

With this exhibition, indeed, Garcia marks the beginning of a new path of artistic investigations, entering a new phase of her career. By mixing colours with lines and stark contrasts, the artist invites the public to enter a new territory and to walk the path that leads through imagination, beauty, the critique of the every day and the vibration of music that accompanies us every day through emotions and feelings.

The Ballrooms of Mars explores the outer space dimension, the mysterious features of Space and the universal language of nature made of “patterns in the vibrations of sound.” We are led in a journey through distant and magical dimension, in which we encounter mysterious creatures and Ziggy Stardust-like characters – born from Camille Rose Garcia’s imagination but also undoubtedly influenced by popular heroes like David Bowie. Music echoes in all Garcia’s artworks, in which the figures hold and virtually play LPs and record players, remarking a suggestive musical iconography that inhabits the paintings. The title of the show itself, The Ballrooms of Mars, comes from a T.Rex song from his 1972 album “The Slider.”

The cosmic energy that flows within music and within human souls creates an emotional bond that can be evinced by the electric and glittery palette used and the captivating atmosphere of the environments depicted. Space is represented not as a dark place, but as an extremely colourful dimension. In this continuous movement of energies, our inner beings awake to participate in a universal dance of sensuous and emotional impulses. L.A.’s musical counterculture, too, becomes evident through the rock and roll sounds of these images – sounds that are also constantly present through the artist’s creative process.

In Garcia’s ballroom we dance to futuristic tunes, we jump from planet to planet, exploring like the Little Prince the secrets and wonders of each place of the journey. In each artwork the spectator can interact with a planet – all of them personified as Gods, “coming together every 25.000 years (The Procession of the Equinoxes) to dance an elaborate dance and play music together, bringing their own sounds from distant planets.”

These gods look evanescent and bodily at the same time; they, like ancient Greek divinities, represent a point of convergence between humans and extraterrestrial. They listen to music, interact with one another and travel like people on the Earth, nonetheless, they emanate an aura of magic that echoes in the concert of sounds springing from their planets. While stardust flows in the atmosphere, Garcia’s works enchant the viewers and challenge their imagination to find, eventually, those hidden worlds that dwell within their subconscious.


Pages From Mind Travelers Diaries - Group Exhibition For Dorothy Circus Gallery’s 10 Years

Dorothy Circus Gallery Museum of Rome - Rome, Italy

November 11 2017 - January 30, 2018

The group show PAGES FROM MIND TRAVELLERS’ DIARIES celebrates the 10th anniversary of Dorothy Circus Gallery and utterly reflects its intrinsic identity and ideology.
The journey towards the remotest spaces of Pop Surrealism is a journey full of surprises and significant meetings that shaped the identity of the Gallery since 2007. In ten years, Dorothy Circus Gallery brought to the Italian art scene more than 60 solo shows, group and museum’s exhibitions. Today, Dorothy Circus continues its exploration, wandering as a circus, and opens its curtains once again to a new public, collecting essential moments for its travel diary.

The double group show PAGES FROM MIND TRAVELLERS’ DIARIES (London and Rome), in the authentic spirit of the Journey, presents inedited artworks, executed on the theme of travel, and celebrates the gallery’s goal and remarkable itinerary.
With the aim of spreading its mission around the world, while absorbing new cultural contexts, the Gallery has started its journey across Europe, landing on a new capital, London, with the group exhibition opening on the 12th of October. In order to honour the close relationship with the Italian venue, the Gallery dedicates a wider exhibition exclusively to its Roman public.
The show will present the second chapter of the exhibition PAGES FROM MIND TRAVELLERS’ DIARIES, with 24 international artists among the most talented and original in the contemporary figurative art scene. The exhibition features already well-known artists, including Miss Van, Gary Baseman, Sas Christian, Kris Lewis, together with new emerging artists, such as Millo, Greg Craola Simkins, Amandine Urruty. Japan’s artistic scene influenced and transformed the contemporary art’s industry, through its fascinating artistic and cultural tradition, its refined and meticulous research of an innovative style, always projected towards a high-skilful technique and virtuosity, and its profound analysis of social matters.

The Roman event will present the homonymous exhibition catalogue “Pages from mind travellers’ Diaries”, containing works from all the artists on show in London and Rome. Among the most recent intriguing discoveries, the Brazilian artist Rafael Silveira, the Iranian Afarin Sajedi, the Korean Kwon Kyungyup and other travellers of the Gallery’s visionary mind.

You May Not Believe In Magic - Group Show

Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea - Milan, Italy

May 26 - July 30, 2017

Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea is proud to present You May Not Believe In Magic…, a group show curated by Michela D’Acquisto.

The works of the artists Amy Crehore, Ilaria Del Monte, Camille Rose Garcia and Anne Siems are permeated by a subtle atmosphere of mystery that subverts the ordinariness of the scenarios depicted, positioning them in the liminal territory where appearance and reality, blending, coexist.

It is a not easily definable quid that which, subtly insinuating itself within compositions rendered with detailed accuracy, lends a disorienting quality to the otherwise lucid representation of the world: a confluence of magical elements, ascribable as much to the literary genre of fairy tale as to popular folklore and myth.
The timeless harmony of the depiction is disturbed by details that transcend the rules of logic; we are therefore in the presence of works that superimpose sensible reality and visible reality, thus revealing the wonderful aspects of the latter and making the hidden structures that govern it undeniable – «you may not believe in magic but something very strange is happening at this very moment» . [1]

Heirs of Magical Realism, the genre that, starting from the twenties of the last century, has been emphasizing the intrinsic wonder of the world, the artists are influenced in the same way by Neue Sachlichkeit and Valori Plastici, by Jorge Luis Borges’ stories and Dino Buzzati’s ones, revisiting these suggestions according to their own style: the resulting works invite to an awakening of the sensibility and propose a vision of the world mediated by the sublime.

In the gallery will be present paintings, works on paper and hand-painted ukuleles.

Phantasmacabre - Solo Exhibition

Corey Helford Gallery - Los Angeles, CA

July 16 - August 19, 2016

On Saturday, July 16th, Corey Helford Gallery will proudly unveil new works from internationally recognized Los Angeles artist and pop surrealist pioneer Camille Rose Garcia. Garcia’s newest series of gothic-psychedelic nature paintings, titled “Phantasmacabre,” will be her first solo show in Los Angeles since 2011and debut the biggest paintings of her career. In addition, this will be Garcia’s first show withCHG.

Influenced by the surrealist and deeply symbolic films of Alejandro Jodorowsky, Jungian archetypes, and fairy tales, “Phantasmacabre” depicts a lush and layered symbolic world that explores the realm of memories and dreams.

Mother nature dominates, with fecund, tangly gardens overtaking painful subconscious memes. Candy colors, repeating patterns, and psychedelic symmetry form an underlying organic structure for the paintings. Figurative fragments from children’s books and fairy tales form a deeply personal narrative dominated by various feminine archetypes and villains. The beautiful and the macabre negotiate a delicate balance of creation and destruction. 

Of her new work, Garcia says: “I’m trying to capture an emotional and psychological landscape where dreams and memory combine to form a personal symbolic language, both unique and universal. I’m interested in the feeling of something beautiful and frightening existing at the same time.  Something painful and pleasurable all at once.”

Ghosts and witches, snakes and skulls frame acid-colored fever-dream scenes of wounded goddesses slayed open, fecund gardens growing from their wounds. Vibrant strange gardens populated with insects and dream imagery portray a psychedelic dance between life and death.

She adds, “Most of my work had been about the painful intersection of nature and culture, the rampant destructive nature of the modern world. At times I feel a certain helplessness about the state of the world, and I retreat into beauty, into color, into music. This is the language of the universe, in all of its repeating patterns. This series of paintings is the most personal, but also universal. It is no longer about culture, but of trying to tap into a deeper symbolic language beyond words.”

Animus Chrysalis Mortis - Solo Exhibition

Roq La Rue - Seattle, WA

March 03 - April 02, 2016

For this body of work I was inspired by the surrealist and deeply symbolic films of Alejandro Jodorowsky, Jungian archetypes, and Greek mythology. I created a personal language of symbols, then made a card set and selected at random a different set for each new painting. This method taps into the elements of subconscious influence and chance, as well as mirrors the cut-up method of writing created by one of my favorite authors William Burroughs.From these subconscious suggestions I created a lush and layered symbolic world that explores the realm of childhood, memory and longing. Ghosts and gardens, snakes and skulls frame fever-dream scenes of wounded goddesses slayed open, fecund gardens growing from their wounds. Vibrant strange gardens populated with insects and dream imagery portray a psychedelic dance between life and death.


Down The Rabbit Hole.jpeg

Down The Rabbit Hole - Solo Show

Cuesta College’s Harold J. Miossi Art Gallery - San Louis Obispo, CA

February 29 - March 25, 2016

In her solo show ‘Down the Rabbit Hole’ Camille Rose Garcia explores ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ through a surreal, psychedelic lens.

Garcia was drawn to the idea of entering a portal to a different dimension. “It’s such a strange story (yet) so enduring. In the world that (Alice) lives in, Victorian women have a certain place. There are a lot of rules,” Garcia explained. “Alice is freed from all of these constraints when she enters this other dimension. She’s freed from being a child. She’s freed from being a woman. She’s freed from anything being orderly or making any sense. Many children’s stories share a similar theme of escape and exploration. As children, we imagine that it’s possible, and then when we become adults, we think that’s not so possible anymore. Fortunately, art has the ability to expand one’s point of view.”

‘Down the Rabbit Hole’ runs February 29 through March 25 at Cuesta College’s Harold J. Miossi Art Gallery.

Camille Rose Garcia was born in 1970 in Los Angeles, California, The child of a Mexican activist filmmaker father and a muralist/painter mother, she apprenticed at age 14 working on murals with her mother while growing up in the generic suburbs of Orange County, visiting Disneyland and going to punk shows with the other disenchanted youth of that era. Garcia’s layered, broken narrative paintings of wasteland fairy tales are influenced by William Burroughs’ cut-up writings and surrealist film, as well as vintage Disney and Fleischer cartoons, acting as critical commentaries on the failures of capitalist utopias, blending nostalgic pop culture references with a satirical slant on modern society.

Down The Rabbit Hole - Group Exhibition

Walt Disney Family Museum - San Francisco, CA

May 9 - November 3, 2013

A collaboration between curators Alix Sloan of Sloan Fine Art and Noah Antieau of Red Truck Gallery, “Small Indignities” is an upcoming group show that features new works from a diverse crop of established and noteworthy emerging artists — and even some Pop Surrealist royalty. The exhibition will open at Red Truck Gallery in New Orleans on September 13. Influential painters Mark Ryden (HF Vol. 28 cover artist) and Marion Peck will be exhibiting alongside the likes of painter and illustrator Camille Rose Garcia (recently featured in HF Vol. 30), digital artists Ransom & Mitchell, heavy metal quilter Ben Venom, assemblagist Brian Cunningham and many others. With so many artists working in a variety of disciplines, the exhibition is an interesting look at how the spirit of low brow has influenced artists of various styles and generations.

Since its publication in 1865, Lewis Carroll’s Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has been reinterpreted visually in a wide-range of artistic styles and media, including as a Disney animated film in 1951. More than half a century later, artist Camille Rose Garcia has updated the enduring classic with her distinctive illustrations that capture a young girl’s surreal adventures after following a rabbit down a hole. This exhibition features some 40 works by Garcia alongside seven concept paintings for the 1951 film by Disney artist Mary Blair. Down the Rabbit Hole celebrates not only the artistry of these two women across decades and styles, but also the power of art to draw us into magical worlds.

In Garcia’s goth-inspired book illustrations, Alice’s encounters with the March Rabbit, Mad Hatter and Red Queen are shown in quirky renditions of Carroll’s story set against colorful backdrops. With her conscious disregard of perspective or scale in her compositions, Garcia creates a fresh and contemporary depiction of the dreamlike tale.

Garcia’s illustrations draw not only from a goth sensibility, but also the thriving “lowbrow art” movement in Los Angeles and its references to classic cartoons, 1960s TV sitcoms, rock music, and comic books. However, in keeping with Carroll’s intended audience and the spirit of Walt’s film, the illustrations appeal to all ages.

Mary Blair is often credited with introducing modern art to the Disney studio. Her work was very adventurous for the time period (1940s and 1950s) in the use of asymmetrical shapes to illustrate animals and create dynamic and visually compelling scenes. Of the many films she contributed to, Alice most strongly bears Blair’s artistic stamp in its bright colors and all-encompassing imagery.

“Blair and Garcia may have half a century separating them, but they both were carving out new territory. Blair was one of the few women in the animation business; her position a credit to Disney’s foresight. Garcia’s aesthetics have pushed illustration further into the art world and brought it to the attention of a new, younger generation,” says exhibition guest curator Tere Romo.

Garcia has said of their artistic connection: “The original John Tenniel illustrations were always some of my favorites and those were definitely lodged in my head. I wanted to stay true to his vision but I’m so influenced by Disney. I loved the backgrounds in their early movies (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Pinocchio), so I watched a lot of those films to try to get more of a color feel. They were all done in the 1930s with watercolor, which has that very classic touch. Using watercolors referred back to the Tenniel work, but I added a little bit of a modern gothic touch as well. That was my vision for the work.” (Los Angeles Times, 2010)

Snow White The Complete Works on Paper - Solo Show

Michael Kohn Gallery - Los Angeles, CA

March 15 - April 14, 2012

Los Angeles' Michael Kohn Gallery will be presenting both an exhibition and book signing of watercolor paintings by Camille Rose Garcia featured in the illustrated version of the Grimm Brothers' Snow White. (We just received a copy of the book in our office, great works). The exhibition will open on March 15, with a book signing on the same night.

Los Angeles' Michael Kohn Gallery will be presenting both an exhibition and book signing of watercolor paintings by Camille Rose Garcia featured in the illustrated version of the Grimm Brothers' Snow White. (We just received a copy of the book in our office, great works). The exhibition will open on March 15, with a book signing on the same night. We had a fantastic feature on Garcia in our 100th issue.

The book, that we are previewig here, will be published by Harper Design, on sale February 28, 2012.

As Kohn Gallery writes, "Camille Rose Garcia's wholly original interpretation of the classic tale of Snow White is underscored by her dark and whimsical style. With a stylistic nod to the watercolored animation backrounds of early Disney movies, Garcia references the golden age of early animation as well as vintage German fairy tale books. Garcia adds back the darker elements present in the original Brothers Grimm text, inverting the Disneyesque paradigm of simplistic happy endings and everlasting halcyon days into something closer to the original macabre German folktale. These incredible paintings will be on view at the Michael Kohn Gallery for a period coinciding with the release of the first two major Hollywood films based off the same tale of Snow White."
