“INTO THE FOREST”

Contemporary Landscapes Paintings
CAMILLE MYLES

Exhibition opens June 1, 2-5pm
continues until June 24.
This series of contemporary landscape paintings “Into the Forest”, explores the vibrant woodland landscapes, testaments to the healing power of nature. These paintings were inspired by hikes taken with the artist’s children, offering respite from chaos and overwhelm, allowing her to reconnect with the energy of the forest.

In a world saturated with distractions, these paintings stand as visual reminders of our profound connection to the natural world. They encourage us to shift from a stance of conquering nature to one of embracing its teachings, absorbing its feminine energy and harmonizing with its vibrations. In this, we recognize that we are, fundamentally, one with nature.
Her palette sings with high-key hues, playful fluorescents, and saturated complementary colors, invoking the vibrant pulse of the forest. Executed solely with acrylic paint markers without the use of a paint brush, these works emanate emotional and high-energy vibrations, capturing the very essence of the natural world.

As a National Park Superintendent, Camille’s dedication to preserving protected areas profoundly influences her art practice. It underscores her commitment to stewardship and echoes in the nuanced narratives depicted in Myles artwork. The choice of this subject-matter stems from her desire to give voice to the often unspoken story of the forest.

In challenging the prevailing narrative of traditional Canadian landscape painting, which often depicts a conquest of wilderness, Camille’s series offers a shift in perspective. It invites us to witness a changing landscape through the lens of feminine insight, acknowledging the impact of human intervention on nature. These paintings are an ode to the enduring wisdom and boundless beauty that nature generously bestows upon us all.
