ABOUT THIS ART:
"'Night at Candy Manor' was from my 2016 solo show in Los Angeles, 'Phantasmacabre.' I was exploring the intersection of horror and the macabre with this fairy-tale symbolism. So the idea of the candy house deep in the forest, from Hansel and Gretel, came into play in this piece. I was also exploring the idea of symmetry as a way to abstract the pictorial space and create other meanings. So you have the twin cat 'Dancers' forming a doorway, a portal into this terrifying house. I think I was exploring my own shadow world and subconscious.

These pieces were chosen for Bicycle Day because they all represent an exploration of my inner worlds: the imagination, the subconscious, as well as our collective symbolism. For me, using psychedelics also takes me to these worlds, and these worlds are our collective symbolism, there is a universal quality to the stories and images that resonate with us.

I think the absolute best advice about psychedelics is to have respect and intention when you do them, and perhaps have a guide. They aren’t a “party” drug. I mean I don’t think of them that way. They are a teacher, but you have to be a good student. Setting is important, the people around you are important, and your intention going in is important. Having done them accidentally the first time, and really against my will the second time, I can assure you that you don’t want to be flying blind!

I would also say do some reading, do some research! Have some knowledge beforehand of what you are even searching for. If you don’t know, that’s ok! But they are powerful teachers so you have to be respectful of that. Personally, I like to be in nature and not around a lot of people, but that’s how I roll anyway. I like to communicate with the plants and it’s hard to  hear them if there’s a lot of people noise around."  - Camille Rose Garcia

ABOUT Camille Rose Garcia:
Camille Rose Garcia was born in 1970 in Los Angeles, California, The child of a Mexican activist filmmaker father and a muralist/painter mother, she apprenticed at age 14 working on murals with her mother while growing up in the generic suburbs of Orange County, visiting Disneyland and going to punk shows with the other disenchanted youth of that era.

Garcia’s layered, broken narrative paintings of wasteland fairy tales are influenced by William Burroughs’ cut-up writings and surrealist film, as well as vintage Disney and Fleischer cartoons, acting as critical commentaries on the failures of capitalist utopias, blending nostalgic pop culture references with a satirical slant on modern society.

Her work has been displayed internationally and featured in numerous magazines including Juxtapoz, Rolling Stone, and Modern Painter, and is included in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Resnick Collection, and the San Jose Museum of Art, which held a retrospective of her work, entitled Tragic Kingdom, accompanied by a catalog of the same name. Garcia’s book, The Illustrated Alice in Wonderland (published by Harper Collins,) was a New York Times Bestseller. Her next book, “The Cabinet of Dr. Deekay”, a surrealist book she wrote and illustrated, will be released in the Fall of 2019 on Sympathetic Press. She currently lives in woods of the Pacific Northwest.
