by Camilla d'Errico
The artist says, "This piece was part of a group show at Gallery 1988 Los Angeles, opening on August 22, 2008. The show, “Crazy 4 Cult: This Time, It’s Personal,” was hosted by cult connoisseur Kevin Smith and his producing partner Scott Mosier. Over 100 artists were asked to cast their unique eye on classic cult cinema, with personal interpretations of cult classics. My piece was based on one of my favorite movies, "Donnie Darko"! It was one of the first pieces to sell, even before the show opened."
Camilla d'Errico is part of what may be the first art movement in Western history where women are not second-class citizens, but may even have an edge in the mind of the public when it comes to capturing the essence that is woman. The thriving culture of innovative and emotionally evocative art that sprang up so forcefully in Los Angeles five years ago and which has now spread internationally was quick to embrace Camilla’s work. She has sold out every large and small show she's been in, at galleries in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Vancouver, and elsewhere. Of late, even Hollywood has come calling. Camilla has a passion for friends, family, art, and life, which goes hand in hand with her profound and insightful side. It’s a duality that permeates her paintings. There’s always a piece of her heart, and perhaps all our hearts, in every one. You can find more of her work at CamilladErrico.com.
