Colourful, optimistic, formal, textural and bold, sometimes even brash verging on grotesque, the next generation of Camberwell graduates are operating in a new era of expressionism. The Camberwell Undergraduate Fine Art Summer show 2016 at Peckham road ran 18 – 25 June 2016 and showed a selection of works from artists finishing BA Drawing, BA Painting, BA Photography and BA Sculpture. The exhibition showed extremes of figuration and abstraction and humour is never far from the surface of the works.
Highlights of the exhibition include works by Josh Wright, Karen Doyle, Amir Osman, Giorgia Castiglioni, Thomas Greig, Matilda Mae Brewer, Helga Thorodssen, Szilvia Bolla and Hedwig Larsson.
