Rose Cameron

Rose Cameron

Born: 1965

Hometown: Manila

Based in: New York City

Rose attended Rutgers Mason Gross School of the Arts with bachelors degree in Art History and Fine Arts. An avid learner, she continued her studies at the Fashion Institute of Technology and Parson's School of Design in New York and studied architecture, film, interior design and marketing. Over the years, she has had a series of successful careers in fashion, design, advertising and as a commissioned artist to private collectors. She has received several industry awards and media recognition throughout her career and has spearheaded. initiatives designed to use the power of art and creativity to affect social change. Her 'Taking Back The Streets' project involved artists, celebrities as well as a partnership with former First Lady Michelle Obama and was featured at the New Museum of Contemporary Art/NY, ArtBeam Gallery/NY, Moonlight Studios/Chicago, and more.

Rose and her parents left the Philippines due to the political turmoil and instability in the country, and moved to the United States when she was 13 years of age. She was told to pack a small bag of belongings and nothing else, and left the country she loved and all the wonderful memories of her youth filled with tradition and creativity. To blend and assimilate in her new environment, Rose was forced to bury her past, not look back and play down her true identity.

It's been over 40 years since she left the Philippines and only recently did she desire and found a way to rediscover and embrace her past....and that's through her artworks. Present in her work are her love and knowledge of Philippine arts and crafts, specifically weaving baskets. Also depicted are the religious rituals, festive ceremonies as well as colors, language and overall spirit of her country. The flowers are integral as they recall the beauty of her surroundings, her duties to family and the church, as well as the women, especially her mother, who thought her basketry and formed her expectations of adult life through their stories over lengthy weaving sessions. Other visual elements, though less revealed, are coconut trees, bamboo, nipa huts, the rosary, rain, music, folktales, and so on....are referenced as they too have significance in her magical, artistic and joyful life back home.

She weaves all these elements with her passion for contemporary abstract expression and visually tells her story with sincerity and a touch of innocence and play. As always, however, she struggles between the desire to reveal all and the need for obscurity. Using her brush, Rose physically weaves a layer of intricate lines over the primary image and decides how much is exposed or what to leave for imagination. This conflict and two opposing spectrums have defined many of Rose's works overtime.

Rose currently resides in NYC and is full time artist. Segments of her newest collection of work, titled 'Interwoven States', will begin to show in September in NYC galleries as well as the Venice International Art Fair.

Rose Cameron In The Studio

"I am reliving my past, "weaving" like I did when I was a child on my canvas. I start with a digital medium, ensuring my emotions are captured in the colors, flowers, and other elements. I transfer the image on a canvas and create the basketry effect/patterns using brushes and acrylic. I aim for accuracy of each intersection, strive for depth and the texture of the real materials used by weavers."
