Cam DeCaussin

About the artist...

Cam DeCaussin draws inspiration from the emptiness found in everyday space and its ability to evoke themes of solace, sadness, and contemplation. His art captures fleeting moments within neighborhood homes during the seemingly tranquil hours between dawn and dusk, revealing brief moments of life within. Existing within the delicate balance of observation and voyeurism, each painting brings the viewer into a multifaceted narrative unfolding before them, reminding viewers of their place within a vast, interconnected universe.

DeCaussin’s work serves as a reminder that we are not the sole being, but rather we exist in many different stories, if only for a few brief seconds. Influenced by the iconic works of painter Edward Hopper and photographer Gregory Crewdson, DeCaussin uses oil paint to imbue his compositions with intricate detail, moments of light and color, enigmatic energy, and an ambiguous mystery within his subjects.


DeCaussin received formal training with a Bachelor's of Fine Art in Illustration from Grand Valley State University and a Master's Fine Art in Painting and Drawing from Arizona State University. His captivating pieces have graced numerous prestigious exhibitions, including the Arizona Biennial at the Tucson Museum of Art and shows at notable venues such as: Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio; Renmin University of China in Beijing; Torrance Art Museum in Torrance, California; RAE Space for Contemporary Art in Berlin, Germany, Mesa Contemporary Museum of Art; Fine Art Complex 1101; Chandler Center for the Arts Gallery; Eric Fischl Gallery; Appaloosa Library of Scottsdale, Arizona. In addition, he is represented by Royse Contemporary, in Scottsdale.


In 2022, DeCaussin presented his work to the Men’s Arts Council of the Phoenix Art Museum. His work has garnered attention in esteemed publications like New American Painting West Competition, Luxe Interior + Design, Phoenix Home and Garden, Phoenix Magazine 2023 Local Gift Guide, and Phoenix New Times, solidifying his status as a prominent figure in the contemporary art scene.

Outside the studio, DeCaussin shares his passion for the arts as Assistant Teaching Professor in Painting and Drawing for the School of Art at Arizona State University. He resides in Phoenix with his wife, fellow artist Amy DeCaussin, their young son, Marcel and two beloved rescue dogs, where he continues to find inspiration in the everyday moments of family life.
