Camille was born in Chicago, and though identified primarily as a painter, found a spiritual home in dance music communities, raves, and electronic and experimental music. Camille's electronic works include collaborations with Israel Vines, and collaborative pieces as Birds of Prey. In a former life, the artist was employed by Universal Studios and traveled extensively painting facades for themed attractions across the US and Asia. These worlds collide into a practice which seeks proof of the real amid 21st century narratives of futurity and progress. Camille's work proposes culture as the work of cultivation through the making of instruments. It aims to create conditions for unfolding interaction, inviting the precarity of human and nonhuman actors to catalyze unknown outcomes and care for their subsequent aftermath. In 2018 Camille received an MFA from Yale, as well as the Blair Dickinson Memorial Prize, presented to an artist “who demonstrates a developing consciousness, personal vision and spirit of search.” Camille lives and works in Climax, New York.
