ArchitectonicAn exhibition of contemporary art made at neo:studios during the 2017 neo:residency Award.


Rowan’s current practice conveys an amalgamating ambiguity of space, place and time, whilst questioning perceptions of the evolving urban landscape. Using ingenuity within the etching process to attain intricate textural marks whilst travelling, fabricates an atmospheric, transient aesthetic precipitating an element of the psyche. Positive and negative space is exerted as a reference to the theories of place and non-place in conjunction with ideologies of smooth and striated space. Through combining this with an interest in psychogeography, Rowan applies facades, architectural structures and textural aesthetics to depict both his psychological and physical experience when traversing within the dense urban environment.
