Corey Helford Gallery is proud to premiere “The Wonderful World of Dr. Deekay" by Camille Rose Garcia on Saturday, May 12 in the Main Gallery. The massive showcase will premiere 10 new paintings, dozens of illustrations, puppets, a stop-motion animated film, and a new mural on the gallery’s wall based on her long-awaited illustrated book “The Cabinet of Dr. Deekay,” a dystopian horror fairytale that will be published this summer in conjunction with the exhibit.

Artist ( Description ): 

Camille Rose Garcia was born in 1970 in Los Angeles, California, The child of a Mexican activist filmmaker father and a muralist/painter mother, she apprenticed at age 14 working on murals with her mother while growing up in the generic suburbs of Orange County, visiting Disneyland and going to punk shows with the other disenchanted youth of that era.

Garcia’s layered, broken narrative paintings of wasteland fairy tales are influenced by William Burroughs’ cut-up writings and surrealist film, as well as vintage Disney and Fleischer cartoons, acting as critical commentaries on the failures of capitalist utopias, blending nostalgic pop culture references with a satirical slant on modern society.

Her work has been displayed internationally and featured in numerous magazines including Juxtapoz, Rolling Stone, and Modern Painter, and is included in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum as well as the San Jose Museum of Art, which held a retrospective of her work, Tragic Kingdom, in 2007.
