"THE SADDEST PLACE ON EARTH" Book Camille Rose Garcia
Garcia's art creates a forest of aquamarine jewels, a place where cream layered cakes, crystal castles, and opiate abundance sedates the masses. But as the telescope retracts, the glossy veneer of privilege falls away to reveal another reality. Machine guns and machetes decorate the landscape alongside exploding poppies. Deer and princesses hang in a cloud of malaise, and disbelief becomes the ether of the living.
