CAMERON FARN SCULPTURE
CREATIVITY IS THE ABSENCE OF BARRIERS
"Thoughts of connectivity, potential as form, and the effects of an object on an observer are at the core of my designs. Each object is a capsule of potentiality, existing as both motion and solidity, a universe of possibilities, a choice, a pause to question what is. In essence they are each a chrysalis waiting for a moment of decision.
Ones thoughts and ideas, following an interaction with any art object, is potetially a rebirth...and I think, this is where their purpose lies.
Story will always be the driver behind each conceptual design or fabrication. Whether they are intended for bronze, wood, steel, acrylic, light or print media, my hope is that they provide a moment to consider the way we think of ourselves and the world around us and reveal an opportunity for emergence into a new world of illumination." -c77
Cameron Farn is a native of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and currently lives in Airdrie, just north of his home town. As a veteran Creative Director and Designer, in public art and specialty fabrication, collaboration with other creatives have nurtured exploration into various artistic disciplines, leading to a unique and very personal form language. As a multi-disciplinary and media artist, Cameron's work continues to be explorative in its conception, build approach and materiality. A welder, drafter and industrial painter. A commercial sculptor, illustrator and designer. Special effects and prop sculptor for film and television, teacher and mentor. He refers to these past experiences as "skill hording."

For years he harnessed his mercurial nature and creative energy to assist other artists in the pursuit of their own visions, and now to explore more deeply, his own. With the support of his wife Susan, father Jim and their family of fur babies, Lab+Huskies Freya and Loki, the artwork continues to flow, expanding into parametric modelling, architecture, lighting and more...
