DeCaussin’s 'at home' solo exhibition in Scottsdale opens Nov. 4

Posted

Royse Contemporary will present “at home,” featuring a solo exhibition of Cam DeCaussin’s artwork that illustrates the beauty of the Arizona sky, midcentury architecture and the desert.

DeCaussin is an oil painter whose work is inspired by empty, quiet living spaces and the ability to express themes of solace, sadness, separation and contemplation, influenced by the work of painter Edward Hopper and photographer Gregory Crewdson, according to a press release.

Royse Contemporary owner/curator Nicole Royse said she is honored to work with and showcase DeCaussin’s “at home” solo exhibition that will open to the public on Thursday, Nov. 4, with a special artist reception, coinciding with the weekly Scottsdale Artwalk from 6 to 9 p.m. The exhibition will be on display through Dec. 31.

Noting the artist’s use of imagery, style, and “strong voice that truly connects with his viewers,” Royse described the artist’s work that entails becoming a parent, painting time and efficiency while incorporating struggles, worries, and questions of parenthood.

“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,” said 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.”

Trained in the arts, DeCaussin has a 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.

Open from 6 to 9 p.m., Thursdays and from 12 to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and/or by appointment, Royse Contemporary is in the Scottsdale Arts District's Marshall Square complex at 7077 E. Main Street, Suite 6.
