About the Artist:
Camilla Roeder is a german graphite artist and illustrator. Born in Cologne, surrounded by roman ruins, and into two families with eventful personal histories of WW2, her interest in the past began at a young age.
Camilla’s works encapsulate an ephemeral narrative; by giving no clear beginning nor ending to the storyline of her artworks, they live on in a constant unchanging state. Camilla aspires to create artworks that feel real and make her viewers wonder about the people she depicts and ask what kind of life they could have led. She wants to celebrate life but also remind her audience of the past, thereby doing her part in the fight against forgetting. Themes of loss, solace, life and death can be found in all of her works.
