Cameron Schoepp's New Work
May 7 - July 10, 2004
Cameron Schoepp's work in the exhibit included plaster and wax sculptural pieces that "rely on a sense of materials, form and proportions to give shape to ideas that grow out of observations and experiences in and out of art."
“Physical space brings together the two separate elements of brimmed hats and body language. Both works begin with the body. Embedded in simple phrases and forms is a history of our understanding and relationship to the body.”
Cam Schoepp was born in Kirkwood, Missouri. He earned his BFA at the Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington in 1984. In 1985, he relocated to Texas and earned his MFA at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth in 1987.
