Exquisitely painted figures that are contorted and ponder-some, inquisitive and reflective, Cameron Bliss studies the female figure in worldly, lavish environments. Her paintings are intricately patterned, ornamental and iconographic, representing a moment in time for each central figure in their habitat. In the tradition of painters as Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt and Edward Hopper, Bliss layers each piece using oil on canvas to invite the viewer into her world of characters in play, in pose, in peacefully enticing gazes. Her love for patterns, wallpaper, architecture, botanicals and clothing brings forth a rich and balanced representation of colorfully alluring paintings that are both imaginative and captivating. The work embodies modernity, the yearn for a simpler time and imbues us to learn that sometimes being is more important than doing.
