THE WORK OF KATHRYN CAMERON
Kathryn Cameron's work explores the fragility of the mind, body and spirit through the use of a variety of materials. Paper, canvas and pure pigments are the sources for an organized world of poetry and sound. The work investigates the drama of light, color and sound through time, including both the eastern and the western cultures, where she explores its impact symbolically, psychologically and spiritually on the soul.
She expresses herself by leaving visible marks, at times, made specifically with her hands, and at other times, more mechanically, through the use of various tools. With each gesture, emerges two important elements of the human condition, the inquiry about identity and the need to leave traces of our existence. Through this process, space and form populate the space of the conscience. Along this path, she seeks to discover the authentic self, slowly removing reality to walk far into an infinite dream.
She is interested in the expression of emotion through the natural elements, symbolic significance and purity of color. The interaction of these elements become a way to interpret and observe the relationship between man and nature. This includes a slow and scientific process that leaves space for emotions, the emotions establish a light presence of poetry, and the poetry recalls echo of complexity and evokes pure images of a distant world. Nature is expressed through these colors, organized through the process of duality, either maintaining harmony or creating antagonism.
Her work is both the generator and the recipient of a silent energy that populates the space, in an organized system of tones and reverberation of sound. All the little movements of the marks become situations that are desired or expected to create drama; the drama of color, the drama of light and the drama of sound.
