Visual Rhetoric and the Aesthetics of Suffering
New Paintings
Donald Cameron (Main Gallery)




Donald Cameron explores in paint the unexpected beauty of the prevalent graphic violence found in mass media. The electronic informative hum of news conglomerates is the culprit and we are the victims. The work in this show is not void of guile, commenting on the here and now and the current trends of our society. Cameron has a viewpoint that has internalized the contemporary forms of entertainment as source material. The painting created is aestheticized with increasing profusion and tricky subtlety. Historically painting has portrayed violence for a variety of means. It works to the same here in Cameron's work, but in a more familiar contemporary frame.
