Countdown diary of a Cambridge Open Studios Artist - Thu 25th June

Visited the Hills Road Sixth Form College Art Exhibition this eveing as daughters work also displayed there (and looking good!).

A good opportunity to see the wealth of artistic talent and ideas of the next generation of artists!

There were some excellent examples of technical competence in oils with a variety of portraits in styles from Classical to Lucien Freud. I particularly liked two sections, the fashion designs using a variety of materials other than fabrics and the photographers. Particularly struck by some of the monochrome portraits and enjoyed browsing one essay on the use of photoshopping of images and impact on beauty perception.

One series of photos dealing with death and crime suggested potential latent psychopathic tendencies.

Very thought provoking - and reassuring in a way too.
