Camille Eskell
Taskmaster Fez: Avadim, we were slaves, The Story of Joe



For Camille Eskell, the psyche is a metaphor and a testimonial, the culmination of our personal experience and history. As the third girl in a turbulent Iraqi Jewish family from Bombay, Eskell felt impelled to explore the psychological legacy that shaped her perceptions, identity, and motivations. Her work examines these cultural and family dynamics, with themes of vulnerability, rebirth, gender relationships, and social convention emerging across several series. Her practice encompasses two- and three-dimensional disciplines, including drawing, painting, photo-based imagery, and sculpture; the techniques are often integrated and combined with a variety of materials, found objects, and ready-mades which form layers of meaning. Award-winning artist Camille Eskell exhibits her work extensively in solo and group shows throughout the U.S. and abroad, including Mexico, South America, and Wales. Current group shows are Invocation at ODETTA (Brooklyn, NY) and Between I and Thou at the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, (Peeksill, NY). Recent exhibitions include Fem-Fragments at the Corridor Gallery, Rush Arts Foundation (Brooklyn, NY), Women's Work at Western Connecticut State University, Seeking Space: Making the Future at DAVID&SCHWEITZER Contemporary (Brooklyn, NY), and Facie: Self-Portrait Interpreted by 25 Artists at Galerie Protege (NY), among others. In fall 2017 she will be presenting a one-person show of current work, The Fez As Storyteller series, at the State University of New York at Geneseo, NY. Eskell's work is in public and private collections, including the Chrysler Museum of Art (VA), the Housatonic Museum of Art (CT), the Islip Art Museum (NY), and the Westport Permanent Art Collection (CT). She has received reviews in numerous publications, such as The New York Times, The Hartford Courant, CT Post, D’arte magazine, Art New England, The Examiner, and Manhattan Arts. Among her awards are fellowships in drawing and painting from the New York Foundation for the Arts and the Connecticut Commission on the Arts respectively, as well as residencies at Weir Farm/National Historic site and the Vermont Studio Center. The artist holds a Master of Fine Arts from Queens College/CUNY, lives and works in CT, and maintains a studio in Chelsea, NY.
