Epson's large format printers and projectors have inspired to create several of the contemporary works on display in the UK's Royal Academy Schools Show.

“The on-site Epson Digital Suite provides students with the opportunity to experiment and create their unique pieces with the very latest Epson digital imaging technology,” Epson said in a press release.

“All 17 students have worked with Epson technology at some time during their three years course and it features strongly in several students' work at the show this year,” it added.

Caroline Abbotts combines and collects materials from both the chemical and the natural world to create her installations.

She used an Epson large format inkjet printer to produce her Faders series of blue-toned silver gelatin prints imaged by the moon.

Josie Cockram works with photographic print, moving images, sculpture and sound and her Wanting series of inkjet prints on plywood were produced on an Epson printer.

Maria de Lima works across a range of media, spanning painting, video, print and sculpture, pivoted on explorations of colour and perception and her 'Triumphal Arch' inkjet print too was produced on an Epson printer.

The only free three-year postgraduate art course in the UK, the RA Schools programme is tailor-made to the individual, affording each artist the space and flexibility to develop their work across a wide range of media.

“It receives no government funding and relies on the generous support of its patrons and sponsors such as Epson,” the company informed.

Situated at the heart of the Royal Academy, the exhibition is held in the RA Schools' rarely-seen working studios and provides visitors with a unique opportunity to view exceptional pieces from a new generation of artists.

The finished artwork spans a range of media from painting to photography, sculpture, digital print and film.

Mark Hamspon, head of materials processes, Royal Academy Schools, said, "The standard of work produced by the students demonstrates the wonderful creativity of the collaboration between RA Schools and Epson.”

“The Epson Digital Suite allows students to experiment with and draw inspiration from the latest digital imaging technologies, often in unexpected and alternative ways, and supports their works across a vast range of media," Hamson added.

Nick White, business manager, ProGraphics at Epson UK, said, "Epson is very proud to continue its support of the Royal Academy Schools and its new generation of emerging artists.”

“Through our mutually beneficial partnership we are able to offer the students the opportunity to work with Epson equipment and media to develop their creative ideas and produce some visually stunning works," he too added. (AR)
