Camille San Gabriel
Camille San Gabriel is a non-binary Studio Art and Secondary Education major at Bridgewater State University. San Gabriel is from Lynn, Ma where they gained a passion for bringing art to children through working at the non-profit Raw Art Works. In their work, they often like to take on social and political issues our country faces. For San Gabriel's last painting class in Fall 2020, they painted a series to reflect and digest some of the many events that have happened to our country in that year.
Painting people has allowed me to bring to life the story that is their life. I love searching for every detail that makes them who they are. I want to bring to life their personalities through painting and allow the viewers to see who this person is even if they have never met in real life. I will often take a surrealist and illusionistic approach to make these unnatural elements come to life on the canvas and have the main focal point be the person that I am painting.
