Camille Rose Garcia took aim at another fairytale a couple weekends ago at Michael Kohn Gallery in Los Angeles with a new body of work based on Snow White, but instead of the seven dwarfs, she brought the whole story into the black lagoon. Like her Alice in Wonderland themed show last year, Camille blended imagery that was consistent in both her repertoire and the well-known tale like apples, poisons, and strange creatures culminating in a fantastic series of new paintings and drawings.

Camille Rose Garcia’s new series of paintings, Snow White and the Black Lagoon opens this Saturday at Michael Kohn Gallery. Following her latest project, The Illustrated Alice and Wonderland, the series is based on the Grimm’s fairy tale, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves,” which serves as an allegory of our current relationship with the natural world, and the “fairy tales” that are told to veil our role in its demise. Florescent colors, seductive black lines, and luminous gold leaf illustrate this dark fairy tale-fantasy. […]
One of the notable booths from this year’s Art Basel was Los Angeles’ Michael Kohn Gallery. Some of our favorite artists like Camille Rose Garcia (interviewed), Ed Ruscha and Ryan McGinness were among the varied mix of talent represented. Another treat was a separate showcase where Kohn displayed a series of new works from Mark Ryden. Check it all out after the jump.
In a clever curatorial touch, Camille Rose Garcia (interviewed) will be showing a new selection of her phosphorescent work alongside Ryan McGinness’ Blacklight series (teased), both sharing uniquely psychedelic color palettes in stylistically disparate ways, with Michael Kohn Gallery during Art Basel South Beach. Raised on a healthy dose of Disneyland, the Southern Californian artist is known for her colorful reinterpretations of the whimsical narratives inherent to childhood fairy tales, yet executed with playfully sinister overtones. In the Spring, she even had the honor of […]
Our friends at Hi-Fructose will be releasing their Hi-Fructose Collected Edition Vol. 2 tomorrow (November 4th, 6:30 – 8:30 pm) at the SFMOMA.

The next signing is planned for New York at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery […]
This may seem like pretty advanced notice, but we were so enamored with Camille Rose Garcia’s last project illustrating Alice in the Wonderland that we had to let you in on this tasty piece of news. It looks like her next show has been announced for March at the Michael Kohn Gallery and this time, another popular children’s story will be the focus – Snow White. AM is looking forward to seeing the new body of work with CRG’s signature twist. Discuss Camille Rose Garcia […]
Something exciting is coming to the UK in the month of May in the shape of “Art from the New World”, an exhibition organized and curated by Los Angeles based Corey Helford Gallery. The exhibit will show a snapshot of the blossoming American new contemporary scene that we at AM love so much and is to be held at the location of last year’s Banksy versus the Bristol Museum – The Bristol Museum and Art Gallery. If you’re in the UK, don’t miss this chance […]
Following LeBasse Project’s SF Pop Up Gallery debut (covered) and Fecal Face Dot Gallery’s Marco Zamora and Derek Albeck show (covered), AM wrapped up a busy and fun-filled night on the town by hopping down to 111 Minna for the opening of Last Gasp’s 40th Anniversary. The underground comic purveyor and alternative arts distributor has pulled out all the stops, calling on their extensive roster of freaks, fine artists and everyone in between. With an all star lineup featuring such luminaries as R. Crumb, the […]
Last weekend, Camille Rose Garcia kicked off her book signing tour at Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles. There were long lines as fans queued up to get her illustrated “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” book signed and to check out the accompanying exhibition entitled “Down The Rabbit Hole”. As she mentions in our interview with her last week, she is a big collector of books so it seems that she was a perfect choice for this project – especially after seeing what a fantastic fit […]
