On Monday I visited Camberwell to see one more BA Degree-Show opening - soon, I think, my head has little capacity for more degree shows left - and again, I picked some of my favorites. This show was highly diverse, due to the amount of all the different courses. I had a special eye for the BA Painting, with emerging and very interesting artists, such as Julie Bennett and Sinhead Reed-Forrester. Bennett's miniature-painting-assemblage "Born to be famous?" shows a range of sensitive and roughly painted childhood portraits from artists who have inspired her throughout her life. William David Marriott, a BA painting student, yet currently sculptor of monstrous babies, has really created some quite eerie sculptures - a cross-mix between Hans Bellmer and some images of horror movies that one would like to get out of the brain. Similarly, the BA Drawing students hardly exhibited any drawings, but rather sculptures and installations. All in all this is a diversified and sort of labyrinth-like degree show, that should offer something for everyone's taste. Its worth going, which you can do until the 25th of June.
