Ron Cameron
Ron Cameron is a self-taught artist who began painting at the age of twelve. His unique style is the result of many years experimentation with oils.By studying the work of his favourite masters, notably Sir Hans Heysen, Ron developed a keen sense of observation. He firmly believes that all painting is based on the effects of light. He therefore spends time analyzing a light effect in nature in order to better understand how it occurs. He also seeks out the colour beneath the surface in order to paint subjects which appear more solid.Ron believes that a successful painting tells a story. It must also give a feeling of light and temperature and create a pleasant mood for viewers.In 1978, Ron shared his first show with Reg Trebilco. Since then, he has had many successful one-man shows with Brisbane galleries. His paintings are represented in several private collections England, America, Japan and Australia.In his early days as a full time artist, Ron entered competitions. Now he prefers to concentrate solely on gallery presentations.His career highlights include:1967 Peoples Choice Award in Melbournes Moomba Art Festival.1978 Most Popular Prize in the Redcliffe Art Show,1979 First Prize in the Caboolture Centenerary Competition1981 The purchase of two of his paintings by Commonwealth Art Bank1986 The theft of one of his paintings from the Brisbane Club. It was one of four paintings stolen. The other three were by very well known artists Lloyd Rees, Ray Crooke and George Lambert.
