Camille is a french artist based in Berlin. His work is influenced by the classical works of the old masters through art history, that he twists to represent his current ideas. Mainly working with airbrushed acrylic and pencil, the paintings often give the impression that it has been made out of collage or digitally, an impression that can be achieved by mixing a classical style of representation with modern codes and techniques. Camille proposes a new vision of what was considered appropriate, sacred and beautiful in art history, by creating a juxtaposition between past an present, and create new stories from what has existed. Through his work, Camille explores subjects such as the iconography, the sensuality, the erotism and the beauty of the body, as well as the human vices and intimate feelings.
1/1 Exhibition : Interface
Diverse in medium, approach and subjects, INTERFACE in an eclectic group exhibition presented by 4 artists based in Berlin. Zemin Gallery serves as the focal point where the different works meet and interacts. The contemporary, religious and satyrical paintings of Camille Theodet clashes with the mystical and intimate paintings of Lucas Ngo, creating a confrontation in between dream and reality, exploring subjects such as the human body, the iconography, the memory, in two very different languages that, yet, can compliment each other. The new serie of screenprints “FACES OF THE STREET” of Jördis Hirsch, proposes a graphic depiction of people and animals in a reduced archaic style. In subtle humour and socially critical commentary, her works are set in bold shapes of paper cutouts and interacts with the poetic and detailed drawings of Julien Vallé, who shows interest in spirituality and meditation, and tries to fill the void with detailed and repetitive content. INTERFACE proposes four different point of view, that can converge towards the human, be it his body, his mind, his vices or his emotions.
