DESCRIPTION

Café Royale is pleased to present With Care, by Cameron Kelly, new works by the San Francisco based artist.

Cameron Kellys' work utilizes vintage personal possessions such as brushes, shaving accessories or embroidered pillowcases combinding these materials with organic references to the body, most notably hair.  Cameron's sculptures push personal, social and formal boundaries evoking what Marcuse has described as the "remembrance of a life between illusion and reality".

Cameron begins her work by searching EBay for materials. She gleans words from the sellers' descriptions and profile information to serve her vignette of a fictitious life, the identity of a memory or a personal history.

The work is at once silly, nostalgic and evocative; it provokes unconscious desires and anxieties that are both personal and social.
