Rose Cameron attended Rutgers University’ Mason Gross Art School receiving degrees in Art History and Fine Arts in 1988. While continuing a private practice as an artist in New York, she pursued careers in marketing, design and fashion over the years and received awards for her achievements as a business woman and entrepreneur. She is now a full time artist represented by Sara Nightingale (New York), Laura Rathe Fine Art (Texas) and Isa Art (Jakarta) galleries. Her works had been part of the Venice International Art Fair, Carousel Du Louvre Art Show, Museu Europea D’Art Modern Art Show, Miami Basel Event, and Los Angeles Art Show, to name a few. She was introduced to Asia at a private event during Singapore Art Week in 2023 with a preview of her works titled Three Sisters and recently had a solo show titled A Small Bag And Nothing More with Sara Nightingale in Brooklyn, NY.
Rose’s works are currently exhibited in New York and Jakarta. Plans for future exhibits in Singapore, Texas and Europe are also in place.
The five artworks selected for the “Rhythms Of Emotion” group show at the Galleria360 is part of the growing and evolving collection titled Interwoven States.
It represents Rose Cameron’s artistic journey to rediscover and reconnect with her lost past and identity.
Displaced and arriving in the United States at the age of 12 from the Philippines, she was met with strong pressure to forget the life she left behind, deny her identity and build a new one to be accepted and discourage the racial discrimination she encountered in her new country.
Sourcing experiences and memories from her childhood – the rituals, people, folklore, music, language and colors of the Philippines – and unifying the works using abstracted sampaguita flowers (the national flower of the Philippines) and basket weaving (a craft she learned from her mother) – Rose celebrates her past and her “truth.” She weaves these elements together with her passion for contemporary expression and continues the dialogue between her desire to reveal her identity and past, and the conflict to remain obscure and hide her truth.
