Camilla Thorup

Born 1976 in Denmark

Human pyramids, human towers, acrobatic acts, wrestling maneuvers, and other similar activities are among the most recurring subjects of painter Camilla Thorup. By depicting such activities, she seems to be able to address the question of balance both physically, psychologically and visually. There is an ambiguity attached to her images and choice of subjects. As if she tries to explore the visual and psychological complexities of interrelations and interdependencies arising from whenever two or more units join and establish unity. Camilla thorup works in painting, collage and drawing, most often in smaller intensified formats. Camilla Thorup is educated at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen in 2008.
