Los Angeles' Michael Kohn Gallery will be presenting both an exhibition and book signing of watercolor paintings by Camille Rose Garcia featured in the illustrated version of the Grimm Brothers' Snow White. (We just received a copy of the book in our office, great works). The exhibition will open on March 15, with a book signing on the same night. We had a fantastic feature on Garcia in our 100th issue.
The book, that we are previewig here, will be published by Harper Design, on sale February 28, 2012.
As Kohn Gallery writes, "Camille Rose Garcia's wholly original interpretation of the classic tale of Snow White is underscored by her dark and whimsical style. With a stylistic nod to the watercolored animation backrounds of early Disney movies, Garcia references the golden age of early animation as well as vintage German fairy tale books. Garcia adds back the darker elements present in the original Brothers Grimm text, inverting the Disneyesque paradigm of simplistic happy endings and everlasting halcyon days into something closer to the original macabre German folktale. These incredible paintings will be on view at the Michael Kohn Gallery for a period coinciding with the release of the first two major Hollywood films based off the same tale of Snow White."
