Coming from a traditional weaving background, Cameron Taylor-Brown studied with Ed Rossbach at UC Berkeley. Rossbach, considered the leader of the California fiber movement, encouraged Cameron to experiment and innovate. Here, she invents a new formal language by integrating digital technology into her weaving process. This series, REFLECTIONS, is based on the artist’s travel photographs. It exploits the interplay of real and reflected imagery and positive and negative space within the warp and weft. The artist first prints a photograph on cloth, and then deconstructs it to be rewoven into the piece. After further layering and stitching, the original image re-emerges as an abstraction echoing its origin.
Cameron Taylor-Brown was introduced to textiles by artist Ed Rossbach at the University of California, Berkeley, and studied textile design at the Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science, where she later taught woven design. Since 1985, she has lived in Los Angeles where she is active in arts and education. Her work is widely exhibited and has been featured in Fiber Art Now, American Craft, Handwoven and Shuttle, Spindle and Dyepot.In 2019, she curated the critically acclaimed exhibit Material Meaning: A Living Legacy of Anni Albers at the Craft in America Center. She teaches workshops at schools, guilds, museums and conferences throughout the United States and Canada, and is the founder of ARTSgarage, a textile resource center in Los Angeles.
