Cameron Anne Mason combines her love of working with fabric with her aptitude for creating in three-dimensions and her early work in performance. This has led her to create fine art for the gallery, celebration art for performance, and interactive installations.
Mason was introduced to fiber art through using batik as a way to create large-scale elements for performance. Intrigued by the possibilities, Mason came upon the work of Jane Dunnewold and her notion of complex cloth. Through a process of reading and experimenting, Mason has developed an extensive knowledge of Surface Design techniques. Her endless fascination with color and texture on cloth informs all of her artwork.
Mason gets great satisfaction from sharing her knowledge with students young and old in workshops. She teaches Surface Design techniques including: dyeing, discharge, batik, using resists, and printing on fabric using silk screens and other tools. Mason teaches regularly at Pratt Fine Arts Center and Space to Create in Seattle and has led festival arts workshops for the Fremont Arts Council and the Oregon Country Fair.
Cameron Anne Mason's next show will be in March of 2013 at Foster/White Gallery.
