Phoenix painter offers glimpse inside pandemic life through the lens of midcentury homes
“Home” has meant a lot of things during the pandemic: a sanctuary, a hideout, a jail. And that’s what Phoenix painter Cam DeCaussin explores in his newest solo exhibition at Royse Contemporary in Old Town Scottsdale.
It’s titled “at home," and it is a striking series of photo-like oil paintings of some of Phoenix’s most distinct midcentury homes, with people coming or going in the liminal space between. They have a feel of voyeurism, but at the same time they are personal — and haunting.
The Show spoke with DeCaussin about his work and what led him to paint this latest series.
