Camille Holvoet's (b. 1952, San Francisco, CA) work is deceptively sweet as her practice tends to draw on remembrances of life's anxieties and forbidden desires. Holvoet’s process is an endless discovery, in which – through repeatedly drawing in oil pastel her sacred objects: dessert, Ferris Wheels, and crossed eyes – the pressures of the past are relieved by the joy of the creative process. When Holvoet combines text with imagery, the resonance between the two is powerful as beautiful, vibrant renderings of cakes and pies are overwritten with recollections of nightmares, fears, frustrated sexual feelings, and religious doubt.
A San Francisco native, Holvoet joined the Creativity Explored studio in 2001. Her artwork has been exhibited both nationally and internationally.
