The Saddest Place on Earth: The Art of Camille Rose Garcia is an excellent resource for fans of the LA artist who creates murky underworlds and disturbing distopias. In this book Garcia’s work deals with the decadence of society and its subsequent destruction. The Saddest Place on Earth is a gem of a ballroom where the masses are sedated by luxury, disguising the ever-present undercurrent of malaise. The Saddest Place on Earth continues themes examined in Garcia’s latest collection of gallery works, Subterranean Death Clash.
