Shawn Camp

About the Artist

Shawn Camp grew up in Coeur dʼ Alene, Idaho and completed an MFA in Painting and Printmaking at Virginia Commonwealth University in 1997. He then set out exploring, art-making, and exhibiting throughout the United States and abroad as an artist and musician. He settled in Austin, Texas where he is a member of the ICOSA artist collective and teaches at Texas State University and Austin Community College. His works have been shown in the United States and internationally and are included in numerous public and private collections. Shawn’s paintings, videos and sound pieces exploit the effects of context and light on our perception - contrasting the ephemeral nature of awareness with the illusion of constancy.

Artist Statement

I make painting, video, light and sound pieces that explore the boundary between the physical and the transcendent. My acrylic paintings suggest air and space; imagery devoid of solid forms. That nothingness is framed through subtle geometric divisions and contradictory hints of color. Through translucence and refraction, the shimmering surfaces convey a sense of atmosphere and explore the mystery of light, matter, and depth.The back-lit mixed media works vacillate between transparency and opacity. In darkness, the physicality of the opaque white paint surrenders to the immateriality of translucent light. The prominent surface is simultaneously a solid wall and an innuendo of expanse opening fictively beyond. Through the capriciousness of reflected and emanating light, heightened extremes of light and dark emerge from changing planes sculpted into the surface, mining veins that run between artifice and honesty.
