is a New York based painter. Along with being trained as a painter, Camille is a lifelong student of electronic and experimental music. Her visual work finds analogy with field recording, soundscape and electronic synthesis by applying a range of manual and mechanical processes to digital snapshots of landscape. The visual record is fed back on itself, oscillated and bent, glazed in oil paint or printed in layers and subtle phases until its meaning becomes one of transformation. The work is a continuous experiment in the generation of new forms out of old signals – forms which are untethered to the past, and exert the gravitational force of a truly unique and pressing now.
Camille is devoted to the study of the intersections of art, music, science and technology, and when not in her own studio she provides technical assistance to students at the Cooper Union School of Art in New York.
