The Royal Academy School's students have been using Epson technology to push artistic boundaries in a graduation show.
The Royal Academy School is staging its annual exhibition of final year postgraduate students’ work profiling the work of 16 artists until 1 July. Several of the works on display include those produced using large-format Epson printers and projectors, accessible to the students in the on-site Epson Digital Media Suite.
Included in this year’s exhibition are:
: who has combined digital printing with painting to produce atmospheric panoramic canvas pieces.
: has created an installation using the large-format Epson Stylus Pro GS6000, the Stylus Pro 11880 and Stylus Pro 9900 printers. Often using high gloss papers and vinyl transfer materials, his works often also include found objects, clothing, posters, photos and prints.
: has used Epson’s printers to create transparent films of details of engravings by Albrecht Durer, which she then uses as guides to produce atmospheric hand cut printing blocks.
: has used Epson technology to help create her installation which includes her study of the mythical beast “Orang Pendek”. Within the installation is a mock gift shop selling merchandising celebrating this creature, including T-shirts, badges, rulers, pens and posters. Surrounding this are two projected film “mockumentaries” that fill the entire exhibition space.
The show, at the Royal Academy of Arts, Burlington House, in London, is free to the public. For more information, visit the Royal Academy's website
