Fred, who is a senior Royal Academician and the current Artist in Residence at the University, will execute the work assisted by Euphemia, a Senior Lecturer in the School of Media, Art and Design, over the next two years. The etchings will be produced during printmaking workshops held at the University’s Augustine Arts Centre. On completion of the project, a series of the etchings will be donated to the University to exhibit in the future.
Fred said: “My work is all about colour and mood. Alice in Wonderland is the one book I took on the Abbey Minor Rome Scholarship to Italy and has been a constant source of inspiration. I want to make a series of etchings incorporating the diverse characters.”
