From the press release: "Cameron (born Marjorie Cameron in Iowa 1922, died in Lost Angeles in 1995) was one of the most fascinating figures in California`s mid-century counterculture. Her paintings, drawings, writings and performances linked the heritages of surelism with beat culture and the occult".
I indulged into the exhibited paintings which reminded me of the surrealist masters like Max Ernst who`s work I have admired in Berlin (surreal). I show here my favorites from the exhibition, a subjective selection as usual.
On top of this post you can see Cameron´s "Peyote Vision" (1955, Ink, Paint on paper). The painting is one of the most powerful visualizations of lust I have ever seen.
