Cammie Staros Biography
Cammie Staros’ hand-built objects marry contemporary sculpture, Modernism, antiquity, and craft. Looking to the voluptuous amphorae of ancient Greece and Egypt, Staros’ sculptures are both historically rooted and disarmingly present. Employing a material vocabulary shared by many ancient cultures alongside industrial applications such as neon and steel, Staros’ work reveals semiotic systems created and reinforced throughout art history.
Cammie Staros (b. 1983, Nashville, TN) received her BA from Brown in 2006 and MFA from California Institute of the Arts, Los Angeles in 2011. Staros has had solo exhibitions at Lefebvre & Fils, Paris (2017) and François Ghebaly, Los Angeles (2015).
