Epson provides the Royal Academy Schools,  the UK’s most prestigious art school, with large format digital printing and AV technologies to allow students to experiment with a broad range of media and materials to produce art work throughout their three year course.

Through experimentation with the Epson equipment, which is available to students in the on-site Epson-sponsored Digital Media Suite, the students are able to development their creativity and explore the possibilities that both old and new technologies have to offer.

The Schools is currently staging its annual ‘Premium: Interim Projects’ exhibition to show exciting work by the artists at the interim point of their three year postgraduate fine art studies and a number of the works featured have been produced using Epson large format printers and projectors.

Mark Hampson, Head of Materials Process, RA Schools said that the exhibition highlights the important role that digital technologies hold for this new generation of emerging artists.

He said: “In this year’s show, certain artworks would not have been either conceivable or achievable without Epson’s support.  In return the students offer afresh view on the way artists will use digital imagery and technologies in the future.”

The exhibition runs at the Rotay Academy of Arts, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London until 15th March.

Artists and work on display include:

Elliot Dodd:  Elliot’s work stretches from 3D computer design, sculpture, drawing, print and sound. He experiments with various technologies and his Prototype piece is produced using digitally printed steel sheets.

Alana Francis:  Alana researches and produces works that are inspired by digital sources and produced using their technologies. Her digitally printed origami paper forms part of her Folded Letter (Paper Kayak) work.

GerganaGeorgieva: Gerganaworks primarily in video, performance and installation. Her digital video installations Djidjena and You Don’t Know My Name are shown using Epson projectors.

Anna Hughes:  Anna creates two and three dimensional compositions using paintings, found materials and sculptural objects, such as driftwood and stone. Her works include a series of large format digital prints on canvas and cotton.

Molly Palmer: Molly shows her idiosyncratic narrative films using Epson projectors.
