OCTOBER
FEMMAGE
Jenifer Cameron

F e m m a g e:
PORTRAITS OF THE FEMALE AESTHETIC
Femmage is a term coined by Mariam Shapiro who was a pioneering force in
the Pattern & Decoration movement beginning in the 1950’s. With this word,
she wanted to include the traditional methods practiced by women such as
sewing, piecing, cutting, appliqué, and cooking in a historical and art making
context.
Throughout my artistic journey, I have grown in my appreciation and recognition
of the decorative arts and the skill and knowledge of women who pioneered the
movement with not much else than thread, cherished scraps of fabric, letters,
personal collections, and the inspiration and passion to persist in the
authenticity of their work.
Each of my collages are created using fabrics, papers and other cherished
objects collected over time. The subject matter centers around women of all
cultures as we thread together our unity in expressing our creativity, developing
artistic skills through resourcefulness and using collage to shape and layer our
own unique visual diaries and traditions.
