Camille Eskell is the third girl in a turbulent Iraqi Jewish family from Bombay. An award-winning artist, Eskell exhibits her work extensively in solo and group shows throughout the U.S. and abroad, including Wales, Mexico, and South America.
Among her awards are fellowships in drawing and painting from the New York Foundation for the Arts and the Connecticut Commission on the Arts respectively, as well as residencies at Weir Farm/National Historic site and the Vermont Studio Center. The artists holds a Master of Fine Arts from Queens College/CUNY, lives and works in the greater New York area, and maintains a studio in Chelsea, NYC.
The Ezekiel Project, works on paper executed in oil stick and wax pencil, embody loss, transcendence and rebirth--rephrasing in contemporary terms Ezekiel's fantastic vision of resurrection in the prophecy The Valley of the Dry Bones. The title also alludes to artist's family name which was Anglicized to better assimilate into American society of early 20th century.
