Camberwell Arts Festival image 2 Layered Lady

Layered Lady by Birte Neilson

I loved this piece by Birte, simple and yet incredibly expressive. The muted colours, jagged edges and overall shapes all play to give you a sense of the sitter.

G Type, Static Sockets by Helen Shaw

I kept coming back to this work. A still life turning the mundane into the uncanny.





Amazingness # 3: High Walkway, Heygate Estate, London, SE17 by Anna Hillman

This image is how I imagine touchdown on another planet. The texture, pattern and colour are surreal. I’ll certainly be venturing to explore Heygate estate!

City Life by Gill Smith

This is very evocative, you get a real sense of the giddiness of the metropolis.




Traces by Francesca Centioni

This is captivating for its eeriness. It’s familiar and alien at the same time. Very atmospheric. A road I’ve been down and yet can’t put my finger on…
