Cam DeCaussin’s oil paintings are an empathetic witness to domestic scenes that often reveal a sense of anxiety and solitude. While painting each scene, he develops his own narrative, projecting onto it his own struggles and thoughts, while observing with sympathy the faint promise of being a presence in an anonymous life.
DeCaussin lives and works in Phoenix. He has a bachelor of fine art in illustration from Grand Valley State University in Michigan and a master of fine art in painting and drawing from Arizona State University. His work has been exhibited throughout Arizona, including the 2018 Arizona Biennial. DeCaussin has also shown in his work nationally and internationally, from Michigan and Ohio to China and Germany. His website is CamDeCaussin.com.
Meet the artist at an opening reception for Lies Unsaid at the Appaloosa Library on Thursday, December 5, from 5–7:30 p.m.
