About Camilla Grell
Camilla Grell’s work is characterised by fantastical tales. Her art makes use of both the negative and positive forms that birth new works during the creative process. Shapes/figures take on a new form either as prints or with new backgrounds or colour schemes. In paper, three-dimensionality is used as both method and form of expression, while Grell plays with the background, shadowing and the space between the figures.
A truth for Grell is that there is more to the world than meets the naked eye. As such, her work often contains a hint of the spiritual. She engages with a motif world, a distinct space between dream and reality, which appears as mysterious female figures, Mexican skeletal women, fantastical animals and resting forms.
Camilla Grell lives and works with her art in Halsnæs.
