Born in the United States, Cameron Hockenson has lived between the USA and Europe for over a decade. Initially studying architecture, he was influenced by the theories of Christopher Alexander, and critiques of design by Bernard Rudofsky, as well as the poignancy of landscape memorialists like Maya Lin. His sculpture adapted the material sensibilities of British land artists, evolving to embrace diverse human and non-human vernaculars in the environments where he works. Through materials, context, and performative gestures, Hockenson's site-specific practice engages issues of biocultural diversity as a unique answer to the question of place.
Cameron Hockenson has shown domestically and internationally at the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery (San Francisco, CA, USA); The Luggage Store Gallery (San Francisco CA, USA); Sculpture on the Grounds at Montalvo Arts Center (Saratoga, CA, USA); Headlands Center for the Arts, (Sausalito, CA, USA); Marin Museum of Modern Art (Marin, CA, USA); I-Park Foundation, (Connecticut, USA); Artist's Open Atelier, Kamiyama Artist in Residence Program (Kamiyama, Shikoku, Japan); The Camargo Foundation (Cassis, Provence, France); Fundacion Valparaiso, (Mojacar, Spain) and is included in international collections like Arte Sella / Incontri Internazionali Arte Natura, (Borgo Valsugana, Italy).
