Meet the artist Saturday 8th April 2017

Mesmerising, ethereal, elusive and arguably one of nature's most impressive displays, the northern lights have proved a worthy subject or this latest body of work by Richard Rowan, Aurora Borealis.

In the pursuit of perfection, Richard travelled to Iceland to witness this marvel for himself. Accompanied by a local photographer and filmmaker, he was able to explore locations far from the usual tourist trail. He was rewarded with impossibly wide skies full of vivid colours, shooting rays, a magical glow and a hypnotic dancing of light.

The aurora is a notoriously difficult subject matter for artists to capture, but Richard's precise & painstaking 'back to front' method of applying oils on glass, working from the foreground backwards, lends itself beautifully to the subject matter. With each layer needing up to two weeks to dry, before the aurora was added as the final element, timing truly is everything.

Richard will be making a personal appearance at The Exchange's Castle Fine Art Gallery onSaturday 8th April from 1pm - 4pm, when he will be on hand to talk about his technique and this fascinating and illuminating body of work.
