Richard Walker: Cuckooland

22-30 September 2020

In August this year we celebrate the centenary of writer Ray Bradbury. His best known novel FAHRENHEIT 451 was written in 1953 and to mark this occasion, artist Richard Walker has produced a new body of work inspired by this influential book.

Rather like the other classic novels of the time, Brave New World and 1984, it deals with a dystopian future, predicting a totalitarian society where literature and education is banned, and books are destroyed by a fire brigade that starts fires rather than extinguishes them.
