Roderick Camilleri 

Roderick Camilleri is an artist based in Malta who is interested in the relationship between the ‘subject’ and the ‘object’. He explores the connection between man and the environment, disclosing implicit notions about existence and life. His body of work explores notions such as ‘ecological justice’ and the ‘post-natural condition’. His creative approaches tease out philosophical concepts related to human existence, and man’s role and place in nature. He is also intrigued by materiality eco-aesthetics and experimental aesthetics. His constant artistic research deploys new materials, experimenting with different media and processes. His preferred media are painting, etching and installation. However, his interdisciplinary artistic practice delves into an array of visual possibilities, using various fields of research. Camilleri’s artistic work has been showcased and featured in numerous shows, art fairs, art institutions and galleries in different countries.
