“Maybe, our whole reality is like, a metaphor, er, and that materialism and commodification, are man-kinds way of trying to express in metaphor the fact that we are trapped in matter. That we are spirit that has to live in matter and die and go through all that kind of stuff. And perhaps, the em, perhaps the actual facts of life as we've constructed it are simply a sort of metaphoric response to that.” - Frankie Boyle, 2017
 

If this is true, then this show could be seen as a spirited attempt to transcend matter.
 

Camberwell Space Projects presents 'Props' a solo exhibition of new work by Billy Crosby, a 2016 graduate of BA Painting at Camberwell College of Arts and winner of the 2016 Vanguard Prize Studio Award.
