Richard Rowan As we have seen across the full length and breadth of the creative community, Richard Rowan’s personal experience during the pandemic has translated thematically into his artistic output. As keen explorer, and one who looks to new horizons as inspiration, it is understandable that his wanderlust has been uncomfortably inhibited over the last year. He told us: “Lockdown has created a longing to travel and see the aurora and mountains again, particularly for my children. I wanted to give hope to everyone longing to get away and go somewhere different. I want them not to feel lost, and to strive for the future and the places they want to see. It is my passionate belief that we should not give up on nature.” A continuation of his Twilight series, Richard’s three new giclée on glass limited editions pay homage to visible lightscapes, and document how moonlight, sunlight, starlight and light from auroras can affect the night sky. Speaking about these works, the artist said: “This new collection captures the journey after twilight. It’s a glimpse through the night sky from late evening to early dawn, stopping off at midnight with a moonlit view of the Swiss mountains. The more we look, the more we can see, from the subtle light changes to the mesmerising colours.” If, like Richard, you are also keen to find escapism in new surroundings, take a look at his YouTube playlist and lose yourself in the mesmerising terrains he has visited, photographed and used as inspiration for his stunning portfolio.
