I liked Callum Mclean‘s delicate housing blocks with the features of a face.

Crossing rock formations with intimate slicings of anatomy, mind Jennifer Crouch splashed semi abstract drawings across ceramics and fabric chair coverings. Very appealing, but in a slightly strange way.

Alice Devine was on the stall downstairs when I bought my Alice Stanley knitted bear so we had a bit of a chat, during which I was most distressed to learn that this is the last year that the Camberwell Ceramics degree course will run… for it is closing down and illustration students will no longer be able to experiment with intriguing ceramic applications for their drawings. Sad days indeed.

Her fun illustrations are based around idiosyncratic narratives – the poster for sale featured a selection of famous figures named John. Follow Alice Devine on Twitter.

Anna Suwalowska‘s work quite simply took my breath away. Her surreal vision of hell was full of interesting oddball detail.

In front of this an installation called The Trapped Mind was inspired by Kafka’s novel The Trial – inside the giant head a labyrinth conveyed the absurdity, angst and helplessness of life. Amazing. Follow Anna Suwalowska on Twitter.

Tendayi VineCamberwell College of Art illustration graduate show 2011-Tendayi Vine
Next door there was some fine prints and soothing landscape abstracts from Tendayi Vine.

Kunyalala NdlovuCamberwell College of Art illustration graduate show 2011-Kunyalala Ndlovu
Kunyalala Ndlovu had created bright Afrographics, inspired by a life spent with one foot in Africa and one in Europe. Follow Kunyalala Ndlovu on Twitter.

Katie Wheeler looked at Cephalopods to create her installation, riffing on their ability to change texture and colour

Alice Roche used germ facts as a basis for her range of germ embroidered hankies, table clothes and printed mugs.

Phew! I think that’s Camberwell done… Don’t forget to check back in with Ovo Show review one and Ovo Show review two before you leave… now to tackle the multitude of other shows I’ve yet to write up….
