Rowan’s evolving creative practice continues to embrace an intense enthusiasm for ice and the natural environment: from the ice-age geology of Gower, to vulnerable frozen habitats around the globe.
Her representational paintings portray fragile rugged terrain, evocative skies and the beautiful, transient play of light on the landscape. However, the completion of a Masters degree in 2019 (Fine Art - Contemporary Dialogues) has sparked exploration of rock and ice subjects in a multitude of new ways using innovation, philosophy and an array of exciting materials in addition to paint.
A passion for ice has led to increased awareness of the damaging impact of global warming on such environments and Rowan states:
“Emerging from my affinity for ice and positioned where art meets science, my latest work reflects both the chaos of nature and man’s impact upon it. Participation in Polar expeditions has strengthened my appreciation of the frozen world which, along with a fascination for geology, inspire my exploration of materiality and the dynamic forces of nature. Gower has some of the best ice-age geology and coast-scape in the uk and I am incredibly fortunate to live here!”
North Wind is open by prior arrangement only, as it is a working studio, however visits can be arranged for any day of the week between 10am & 7pm.
