Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Eric Cameron is a conceptual and process artist of international stature who has influenced many contemporary artists throughout his fifty years of inspired teaching and unusual art. This is the first book written critically and comprehensively about his work. Editor Ann Davis joins three respected and renowned art scholars—Peggy Gale, Diana Nemiroff and Thierry de Duve—to critically assess Cameron's work in all its glory and considerable enigma. This includes his early work, his perceptive writings, his videos, and his Thick Paintings—in which the artist coats objects with thousands of layers of gesso, transforming them into something else entirely.
