Cameron Anne Mason combines her love of working with fabric with an aptitude for creating in three-dimensions. This has led her to create fine art for the gallery, celebration art for performance, and interactive installations.
In the work shown in this month’s West Seattle Artwalk, the figure is used to explore that which is seen and that which is kept close to the skin. The Waitress, the Mother, the Lover, all of these roles play a part in a woman’s life, fragmentary and coexisting.
Cameron’s artwork is informed by the exploration of surface design on fabric. She is largely self-taught, experimenting in the studio to find successful methods. The fabric for this body of work was created through breakdown printing, a silk-screen process that changes with each print. Patterning, forming, and stitching complete the pieces.
