Camila Wilde developed the Energy Paintings as a visual contribution to the #MeToo movement: art inspired by reclamation and vulnerability.
With vivid colors and use of imperfect symmetry, the work evokes abstractions of female anatomy and serves as a translation of female, queer and adjacently quieted voices. The Energy Paintings channel feminine energetic charge and momentum as a source of healing.
In a time that feels politically foreboding and exhausting, the work is intended to emanate positivity, validation and support to victims meanwhile inspire strength to continue sharing our stories.
A Seattle native, Camila Wilde graduated with her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Digital & Mixed Media from Western Washington University in 2015. She currently lives and works in Bellingham, Washington as a sock designer and advice columnist.
