  • Saddest Place On Earth


Machine guns and machetes decorate the landscape alongside exploding poppies. Deer and princesses hang suspensefully in a cloud of malaise, and disbelief becomes the ether of the living. Ultraviolenceland is the opulent wallpaper of destruction that decorates our lives. Its surface is seductive, its layers are complex, and its future is uncertain. Camille Rose Garcia's work examines ideas of decadence, deception, and denial explored within the context of 'Empire.' It serves as a looking glass into the everyday violence that supports the current power structure and prescribes a glitter coated pill to ease the swallowing. The effect of the pill once digested, however, depends upon the viewer. Camille Rose Garcia draws inspiration for her creepy distopias from her upbringing in the generic suburbs of Orange County. Her disenchantment with society brought her into a world of subversive art and music. Garcia's work has been featured in Juxtapoz, Paper, Flaunt, and Blab.
