Seth Cameron’s contemplative paintings are orderly, symmetrical compositions of complementary colors that are sometimes barely distinguishable from one another. These color study paintings in beautifully crafted artist made frames call to mind Ad Reinhardt and Josef Albers while others represent space as they explore the fundamentals of painting such as figure and ground, interactions of color, shape and line, etc.
