Eric Cameron

Reds and Yellows on Green (type 111q, 1/2" tape)

1968
In his "Process Paintings", Eric Cameron tries to control and understand the process of painting by defining simple parameters for his paintings and observing the results. Here, for example, he used Scotch tape to compose grid patterns for a set of tonally balanced colours, red, yellow, and green. He found that the painting's unpredictable optical rhythms were the result of slight variations in the way his hand laid down the tape.
