Cameron Anne Mason Techniques
Cameron Anne Mason combines her love of working with fabric with her background in graphic design and her early work in performance. This has led her to create fine art for galleries, celebration art for performance, and interactive installations.
Mason was introduced to fiber art when first using batik as a way to create large-scale elements for performance. 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, silkscreening and other tools as well as sculpture workshops both locally and internationally.
As stated by the artist, “Fabric is fundamental to my process. It is an intimate part of our lives. It protects us from the elements, gives us comfort, and a means to express ourselves. It is sensual and essential. I am drawn to fabric because of its changeability and its constancy. Fabric is the skin that clothes my work.”
