A visionary painter and unparalleled draftsman whose work evokes Latin American and European surrealism, Cameron rendered mythological figures with a singular attention to line and the idea of spiritual metamorphosis. Her philosophical explorations soon brought her into contact with Los Angeles's beatnik and avant-garde film circles, and the unorthodoxy and breadth of her interests made her a unique link between the city's flourishing spiritual and art worlds.
Over the following decades she dedicated herself to her art and mysticism while mentoring younger artists and poets such as Aya (Tarlow), Wallace Berman, George Herms, and David Meltzer. The first survey of Cameron's work since her passing in 1995, this exhibition reveals the seminal role she played within the development of Los Angeles's midcentury counterculture.
