Kerrera #4 is an original painting by Jon Rowland. A series of paintings that reflected my response to the landscape of Kerrera, an island that is part of the Inner Hebrides. No roads few people, and a rugged and exposed landscape that varied from stormy and windswept to light and calm. Sketches on site, studio works.
Jon comments: I have exhibited in London and Oxford. My paintings have been displayed at the Royal Academy and at the Berthold and Darren Baker Gallery in London. I have also exhibited at Linacre and Green Colleges as part of group exhibitions, at the Borlase Gallery in Blewbury and Swann Gallery in Woodstock, and most recently had exhibitions at Canal Street Studios, the Said Business School and Wolfson College in Central Oxford. I work in mixed media based on acrylics. The themes of my paintings have emerged from trips to, among other locations, Venice, Scotland, Cuba and France. I work in series and much of my work is built around themes of rural landscapes most recently in the South West, Clovelly Beach in Sydney, and the exploration of detail – part of the ‘Portraying the Essence’ theme. Recently I have concentrated on landscapes and cityscapes exploring colour and space. My paintings are in private collections in the UK and elsewhere. There’s a story to every picture. “Painting is a journey. The picture takes on life of its own, sometimes going with your flow, sometimes challenging you. Chance and opportunity are the travelling companions; but the art is to know when the journey is complete.
