Known for his reverse techniques of painting – in which he paints backwards on the opposite side of a sheet of glass – Richard Rowan says he is on a constant learning curve.
His unconventional method was honed using glass from the local tip whilst working at Formula One. Inspired by the art of J.M.W Turner, he became fascinated by the power of light. Behind each work, there is a viewing panel at the back of the glass. The medium enables him to achieve a much smoother gradient and colour spectrum than canvas. In turn, his nature phenomena are brought to life. Richard often listening to a different soundtrack per piece so each time he plays the specific music he can immerse himself back in the mood and mindset.
“I am inspired by the magnificence and splendour of the nature environment. By capturing the movement of light, I encourage my viewers to feel as if they are there in the moment.”
