The more you look at Cameron Bliss’s work, the more you see. Educated at the Savannah College of Art and Design, Bliss started out painting landscapes but now focuses on portraits. Her paintings mostly show women, whom she generates from her imagination and some photographic references. They meet and challenge our gaze, and the interiors they occupy, rich with plant life and pattern, contain insights into their minds and hearts. Alice Neel, Eric Fischl, Hernan Bas and Edward Hopper serve as inspiration in the way that they, too, use paint not to substitute for a photograph but to render the artist’s impressions of the world. Her work hangs in private collections around the world, and has been exhibited in galleries in Athens, Savannah, Atlanta, Virginia and Wisconsin. Bliss currently lives in Winterville, Georgia, where she serves on the Winterville Arts Council and is invested in empowering the youth in her community through the arts.
