Camilla Marie Dahl b. 1993, Sharon, USA is a painter and sculptor based in Brooklyn, NY. In 2011, Dahl attended Kunsthøjskolen I Holbæk, a school of fine arts in Denmark. She then went on to graduate from Skidmore College in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in Studio Art. Dahl proceeded to have a successful early career, attaining numerous awards including the SEE Beyond Award, which facilitated the creation of her first full scale bronze figure sculpture. She has resultantly exhibited works in group shows across the USA, including ‘One Year of Resistance’ and ‘Uprise/Angry Women’ at The Untitled Space in New York City. Further, Dahl is a recent recipient of the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant, and twice the recipient of the Leslie T. and Francis Posey Foundation Graduate Art Scholarship. In 2019, she was awarded a residency at La Ceiba Grafica in Veracruz, Mexico. Additionally, she is a recent graduate from the New York Academy of Art with an MFA in Painting.
Camilla Marie Dahl’s textural paintings and sculptures are created concurrently and in conversation. They meditate upon human manipulation of the natural, and concepts of hubris, modesty and isolation. Through their timely construction process, and as finished artworks, her paintings and sculptures consider the inherently humane appreciation of the natural world versus our self-centering desires to contain, control and optimize. Ultimately, the artist wishes “to communicate a championing of humility over ego.” Her robust and ambitious artworks are highly regarded, and have been collected internationally. Last year, Dahl’s work was auctioned at Sotheby’s New York.
