Camilla Bliss is a Mixed-Media Artist who lives and works in London. She completed her BA at the University of Brighton in 2012 before going on to receive an MA in Fine Art Sculpture from the Royal College of Art in 2021.
In her work she blends the digital and the handmade through her practice, utilising a wide range of materials such as ceramics, metalwork, glass, wood, textiles and 3D printing. Crystallising her ideas through digital manipulation, the artist places an importance, however, on handmade processes and qualities. Bliss’ work is influenced by historical craftsmanship, motifs and mythologies which she uses as a framework to communicate ideas about the modern world. Using universally recognisable symbols, Bliss allows the viewer to bring personal narratives to her work, mediated through a playful use of colour, material and surface.
She received the Yorkshire Sculpture Park Graduate Award in 2021. Her work has been exhibited extensively in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United Kingdom, including at Turner Contemporary, Margate and Saatchi Gallery, London.
