Camille Rose Garcia's Snow White

Camille has a slew of new works, based on Snow White, following on the heels of her last show - Alice in Wonderland. The show opens March 15th at Michael Kohn Gallery in LA, along with a book release and signing.  Camille's works are always enjoyable and beautifully captivating; this group appears to be no different. A must-see exhibition if you find yourself in the LA area, it will be on exhibit thru April, 2012.

"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 backgrounds 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." - Via Michael Kohn
