Cam DeCaussin’s solo exhibition is extended through Jan 9 at Royse Contemporary

Posted

Royse Contemporary has the “at home” exhibition on display through Jan. 9, in the Scottsdale Arts District in the Marshall Square complex, 7077 E. Main St., Scottsdale.

Featuring the solo exhibition of Cam DeCaussin, the artwork emphasizes the beauty of the Arizona sky, midcentury architecture and the desert, according to a press release.

“It is my honor to work with and showcase this talented artist,” states Royse Contemporary owner/curator, Nicole Royse in the release, noting the artist’s use of imagery, style, and voice that connects with his viewers.

“One of the biggest changes to the artist’s work comes from becoming a parent, in regard to painting time and efficiency which has become even more important. We also see changes in his themes, incorporating the struggles, worries, and questions of parenthood.”

Cam DeCaussin is described as a highly-skilled oil painter with a keen eye for detail and an ability to capture the energy and mystery within his subjects, according to the release.

His work is inspired by empty, quiet living spaces and ability to express themes of solace, sadness, separation and contemplation, influenced by the work of painter Edward Hopper and photographer Gregory Crewdson.

“During Covid-19, there were several articles that came out about how we were all living in an Edward Hopper painting, and I have always related to Hopper’s work, the quiet solitude, and isolation,” states DeCaussin in the release.

“While we all were left at home, I could not find the energy or interest to paint, especially what I had always loved to, there was a heightened awareness of the mundane. As the world has slowly begun to reopen and things begin to speed back up, I feel we quickly have lost that ability to notice the liminal spaces.”

Formally trained in the arts receiving his bachelors of fine art in illustration from Grand Valley State University and masters of fine art in painting and drawing from Arizona State University.

His work has been featured in numerous group and solo exhibitions including: AZ Biennial Tucson Museum of Art, Fine Art Complex 1101, Mesa Contemporary Art Museum, and Renmin University, the release said.
