Camila Labarca Linaweaver was born in Santiago, Chile and immigrated to the United States at the age of 7. She lived and studied in Texas and holds a B.F.A in Visual Arts from The University of Houston Clear Lake, and recently received her M.F.A in Printmaking from The University of Oklahoma. Linaweaver’s focus within the printmaking medium is almost exclusively on singular and experimental prints. Using the landscape as a metaphor, she crafts narratives of immigrant displacement, loss, and alienation. Her unique approach to confronting her personal history as an immigrant results in highly nuanced imagery that aims to bridge opposing sides and create positive discourse within the context of global immigration issues.
As an emerging artist, Linaweaver has exhibited extensively throughout the US. She has chosen to pursue a career in Academia and is the 2019-2020 recipient of the CAA Professional Development Fellowship in Visual Arts.
