Camille Selhorst Artist Statement:
My whole existence is about delighting in the sensory experience of life. As I little girl I would walk barefoot through fields of mustard flowers, feeling the dirt between my toes, fingertips brushing through leaves. There is so much pleasure to be discovered in the seemingly mundane experiences of everyday moments – a silk scarf against a cheek, sun-kissed flowers, warm water. I can’t possibly count the number of times I have leaned in close to a rose along my morning walk and buried my face in its lush scent. There is a luxurious deliciousness to it which pulls me in over and over again and delights me to no end. I strive to imbue each work of art with this same tactile delight. It is sublime, and it is impossible to ignore.
