First year student Camilla Busby held an exhibit in the Case Center Gallery this past week. Her work focuses primarily on the human body, exploring the shape and contour of the figure in all different forms.
Busby blends oils to create textural illusions that echo the feel of the body itself. Her other featured works depict surrealist settings, portraiture, and still life studies.
Busby's artistic training includes a summer program at the Rhode Island School of Design, and a semester at Kunsth??jskolen Schoolin Holb??k, Denmark where she studied drawing and oil panting during her gap year between high school and college.
The majority of the paintings in Busby's show were created during her time in Denmark, while the others were completed during the latter half of her gap year in her hometown of Cornwall Bridge, Connecticut.
Camilla plans to pursue a studio art major with a concentration in painting during her time at Skidmore College. Camilla's work will also be featured in the upcoming Case Gallery show in late November, sponsored by AidsBenefit, which will be focused on the durability of the human body.
