Camille Rose Garcia‘s new show, Tragic Kingdom, is opening at the San Jose Art Museum tomorrow and it looks like it’s going to be an interesting show. Anno Domini’s Cherri Lakey had visited Garcia during the exhibit installation and snapped a few shots. The shots are available to view on her Flickr page.

“Camille Rose Garcia was born in 1970 in Los Angeles, California and grew up in the generic suburbs of Orange County, visiting Disneyland and going to punk shows with the other dissenchanted youth of that era. Her paintings of creepy cartoon children living in wasteland fairy tales are critical commentaries on the failures of capitalist utopias. Creative influences include Phillip K. Dick, William Burroughs, Henry Darger,Walt Disney, as welll as politically aware bands like The Clash and Dead Kennedys. Her recent solo show, Ultraviolenceland, explored ideas of violence and empire.
Her work has appeared in Flaunt Magazine, Rolling Stone, Juxtapoz, and Paper Magazine, among others. She currently lives in Los Angeles.”
