Artist Deborah Cameron
Title This is Where I Want to Be
Media digital composite photograph on paper
Dated 2021
Size 12.5 x 12.5 in. / 31.8 x 31.8 cm.
Frame Size 13 x 13 x 0.75 in.

Notes
ESTIMATED RETAIL VALUE $280 - signed, titled and dated on label verso; framed

Reference
With Photoshop, I manipulate images through a layering process where each image is comprised of numerous textures, filters and individually, digitally-cut flowers. I then create a space that unfolds through depth by accumulating stratums of light, transparency and opacity. Often the choice of images is instinctive and random in nature. This interweaving of imagery creates a synergy of the natural elements and presents them in a way that is new and fresh. Nature is creative, thus there is order and disorder in these intricate compositions.

Title Sunshine Meadows
Media manipulated polaroid C-print

Frame Size 23 x 22.75 x 1.5 in.

Notes
ESTIMATED RETAIL VALUE $800 - bears artist's name and title on label verso; framed with archival mat

Reference
According to the artist: I like to imagine earlier days when Catharine and Peter Whyte and other artist, explorers and mountaineers experienced stunning Rocky Mountain gems like Sunshine Meadows and how we all have been impacted by their challenges, beauty and sublime impressions. This Polaroid with pastel was initially created en plein air while responding to a sense of place through my feelings, the scenery, geography, weather and wildlife [mosquitoes!]. Later, the manipulated Polaroid was photographed or scanned and then printed as an enlarged photograph. As an artist and mountaineer I find these outdoor experiences to be a meditative and timeless process that often create a powerful spiritual awareness and vivid memories.

Rocky Mountain Legends, all three, from vastly diffgerent backgrounds but with a common passion for the mountains. According to his biographer, Austrian climber Conrad Kain 'brought glamour and imagination into the sport of mountaineering as few guides have done before him.' Dr. Cora Best of Minneapolis was a woman far ahead of her time, as a physician, as a section head for the Alpine Club of Canada, and as a mountain climber. Her best friend, Audrey Shippam, was equally as passionate about mountaineering. Much has been written about the first ascents and other accomplishments of Kain and Best.
