The first showing of work from Camilla’s project COAST. This ongoing series explores The British Isles, with a focus on its coastline, rivers and canal system. COAST looks at isolation, rugged nature and manmade environments. The works explore a nation along with its geography and its choices.
Camilla has long been interested in the natural and manmade and how they coexist and blend together. COAST examines how this coexistence is increasingly strained as the manmade overburdens the natural, questioning throw-away culture and modern life styles. The works are made partly or entirely with found objects and then altered, painted on and shaped to resemble pattern and form taken from nature. By working in this way Camilla seeks to draw attention to sustainability and the stunning beauty found in Britains’ land and seas.
