Elizabeth L. M. Campbell

California Palace of the Legion of Honor

Mrs. Campbell explores the rectilinear color-grid idea not, however, in terms of the contemporary Hard Edge approach, with its emphasis on monotonous and optically hypnotic regularity, but well within the style and characteristic inflections of Mondrian, Glarner and the early Bauhaus. Even at this, her craftsmanship is hasty and amateurish and she brings absolutely nothing new to a method long since carried to its ultimate and most effective realization by others.
