Enwomb is a collection of works constructed of natural materials, and photographs of works in the landscape, which offer different representations of nests, exploring them as symbols for the womb and encouraging the viewer to examine our personal relationships to mother, planet, home, body and the space where all of these things cross.
About Cameron Krow
Cameron Krow is some amalgamation of farmer, artist, activist, community builder, naturalist, and wanderer. He was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico; his upbringing in the high desert, and the relationship which he developed with the land as a consequence, has served to deeply inform who he is a person. While his youth was spent studying philosophy, followed by backpacking, hitchhiking and train riding around the continent, his adulthood has been largely structured by passions for farming, herbalism, and land art, and photography. While his work is focused more on personal ritual in nature than creating commodifiable art objects, his craft has been featured in collaborations with friend and fellow land artist Billy Joe Miller, in locations such as Los Poblanos Organic Farm, ABQ Railyards, and 516 Arts.
“My work explores themes of impermanence, transformation, and communion. In my sculptures, which are often site-specific installations in natural areas, I utilize materials from the land, gathered locally and ethically. These pieces are typically left unmarked and unidentified to be “discovered” independently by passersby and by their nature implore some kind of interaction. My intention is to invoke a sense of magic in the viewer, which temporarily removes them from their everyday reality and allows them to reexamine one’s place in the big picture.” – Cameron Krow
