Chaplin, who taught art at the University from 1966 to
1991, returns to the University Gallery for an exhibition
of his drawings and paintings made during the last decade.
Chaplin draws as a daily act, whenever an opportunity
arises and whatever is around him: objects and fragments
of his environment, supported by text, providing a diary
or what he calls a 'life-trace'. The exhibition, which
runs until March 22, presents a selection of his pocket
books, whose concertina format shows more than one page
at a time, as well as a large group of oil paintings.
