Jeffery Camp - A Visionary
Along with his life as a painter Jeffery Camp illustrated and wrote three remarkable books. DRAW was the first, which took him three years to write. It was published in 1981 and was followed by PAINT in 1996. They were filled with reproductions of his own and others’ work and accompanied by a compelling commentary that enhanced and extended the visual ideas.
The third book, ALMANAC (2010), is an engrossing pictorial autobiography that examines Jeffery’s life, art and friendships. The result of a three-year collaboration between Oya at Art Space Gallery and Jeffery it runs to nearly five hundred images and is again illuminated by wonderous, often poetic, verbal insights into his life, his work and his imagination.
