BIO

Camilla Bliss (b.1989, London, UK) is a currently studying sculpture at the Royal College of Art. She regularly works with ceramics, often drawing inspiration from historical practices, social rituals and the parallels between the modern world and myths of the past. So much of our experience today is processed through digital communication leaving little room for reverie. Her work draws upon the handmade where we can feel grounded to a sensual reality, yet at the same time moves us into our imaginations. The narratives within her work are built up from a language of symbols that sit in a liminal space: on the threshold of a transitional phase. The sculptures often hold double meanings or even conflicting ones; setting us in a sense of no man's land or an otherworldly space.

Recent exhibitions include; Hawks In Her Hair, Alice Black Gallery, London (2021), Pending, San Mei Gallery, London (2021), Window Project, Gazelli Art House, London (2019), Threads Salon, Turner Contemporary, Margate (2018). Camilla Bliss also makes ceramic works for the New Craftsmen, London.
