Juxtapoz Magazine – Camilla d’Errico “Prism” @ Haven Gallery, Northport, NY

Haven Gallery is honored to present Prism, a solo show of new work from Canada based artist Camilla d’Errico. Prism is Camilla’s third solo show at the gallery and explores the power of color to convey her narratives and serve as a creative tool for both creating and expressing emotion. Often, the complexities of our feelings cannot be put into words. Camilla’s artwork serves as a conduit to portray these variations of the human condition. Further, her intermingling of muted, monochromatic palettes with rainbow hues create a striking and powerful representation of the immense nature of our emotions.

How we feel is a large part of who we are, and the works in “Prism” express the dualistic nature of our emotions and the beauty in its sentiment. Similar to the color spectrum, emotion covers a vast range, with intermingling elements and complexities. The portraits in “Prism” use color brilliantly to represent these aspects of our being. Camilla’s art has always served as a positive and powerful representation of the beauty of diversity. Through her paintings, she represents a vast array of individuals painted to highlight their unique beauty and differences. Yet, her works are idealized and through their styled and expressive faces, become a metaphor of being human and finding the beauty and acceptance not only of one self but of those around you.
