Camille Holvoet: Savory and Sweet

June 8 - September 24, 2012

18 Reasons

San Francisco, CA

Spaghetti and Meatballs (detail) by Camille Holvoet © 2012 Creativity Explored. Mixed media on matte board. 16”x14”.

Camille Holvoet's first solo exhibition at 18 Reasons in San Francisco.

Camille Holvoet is showing a selection of work involving savory items such as macaroni salad, bean salad and SpaghettiO's, and junk food alongside cakes and cupcakes.

Holvoet’s artwork is an expression of food, love, and memory; and sometimes, the anxiety that longing for a delicious meal can provoke. An artist of decadent and specific tastes, Holvoet presents work of unexpected color and depth of feeling which transforms the iconic foods of celebration (cake, pie, ice cream, hot dogs, French fries) into mythical objects of beauty. Her work is confessional, revealing personal desire with a risky surrender to imagination that is ultimately hopeful and always joyous.
