Oil Paint, Metal Paint & Emulsion on Canvas.
61cm x 61cm
“Construction” is a key element here, as Rowell has tried to convey the structured resistance found in architecture within this artwork. The form placed within the geometric shapes add a supporting composition to the flowing oil paint, that powerfully draws the eye of the audience. The work has clean edges, allowing for a story to be displayed behind the work with every singular step being further analysed. In places the oil is able to retract from the paint and is seen to pour into the smooth surface, created through vigorous sanding of emulsion paint until the background offers a subtle tone that will remove any distractions from the foreground.
