Rowan Paton
  • Work
  • Biography
Considerations of materiality, mark making, colour and language characterise my work. Employing situation based, two and three dimensional practices, low tech media, appropriated and self made imagery, I create imagined spaces.

My work affords me a route to unpick timeless, persistent human challenges such as oppressive feelings of isolation, and seemingly immovable emotional obstacles. Landscape, and in particular, the mountain, provide a reference through which to explore these.
