Cam DeCaussin is a painter currently residing in Phoenix, AZ. His work is inspired by empty, quiet living spaces and their ability to express themes of solace, sadness, separation and contemplation. Primarily focusing on moments within neighborhood homes during the dawn and dusk hours of the day, these brief moments showcase when life exists within. Drawn to the physiological response to flirt with voyeurism, each painting acts as a living television screen, a reminder that we truly are not the center of our own universe; that we are but background actors in an infinite amount of story lines, and we exist in that story often for brief seconds. The influence of painter Edward Hopper and photographer Gregory Crewdson have had a great impact on his work, with similar themes.
Cam hails from the small border town of Marine City, MI and would go on to attend Grand Valley State University where he received his Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in illustration in 2010. He has received his Master’s of Fine Arts in painting and drawing from Arizona State University in 2017.
