Camilla Webster Coral Springs Museum Of Art (Softcover)
It is a writer’s journalistic obligation to invent a method of inscription that paints a clear “picture” with words and without using a brush. So, it’s not surprising to learn that artist Camilla Webster, whose work is the focus of an important survey exhibition at the Coral Springs Museum of Art (CSMOA), offers the viewer dreamlike canvases that discourse visually like a travel correspondent’s notebook. Webster, who also is a former professional reporter and award-winning writer and journalist for Forbes and the Wall Street Journal, has quite naturally and elegantly channeled her previous extensive and evocative writing experiences onto a dynamic, painted canvas that speaks its own distinct non-representational language with a universal message. Starting her career at CBS News with the creators of shows like “CBS Sunday Morning” and “60 Minutes,” Webster learned to craft a distinct, comprehensive, advanced plan of action using audio and video to capture the power of nature and world changing events. She brought to the audience the essence of a subject’s often colorful personality and a condensation of information within a restricted amount of time.
