Camille M Brown
Camille Brown (1978) is artist, traveler, & teacher. Her work is contemplative, meticulous and greatly influenced from living and working abroad in support of displaced migrant communities, education, and advocacy for women, families and children. She currently resides in Baltimore City. She has exhibited in Chiang Mai, Thailand, Seoul, Korea and Panama City, Panama as well as Atlanta, Baltimore, and San Francisco. Her work is meticulously linear, a collision of lines with a focus on a single figure. She invites the viewer to witness the nobility of marginalized and disregarded individuals and communities. Particularly with regard to the humanizing of girls and women, she aims to offer a platform uncluttered by traditional archetypes and paradigms where the inherent value and nobility of an individual or experience is its own story. She aims to do this without patronizing or commoditizing the experience, culture or suffering of her subjects, but to clear a pathway for the viewer to engage, untethered by indifference or preconception.
The artist finds solace in art as a pathway for understanding and communication beyond the limitations of language. Her aim is to transform the intangible, scattered thought, trauma, frustration stagnation and refine it into something clear, separate and sharable.
