There is no way around just through
Robbie Rowlands’ practice is informed by acts of intervention. The artist cuts, slices and peels apart interior architectures and material objects to expose the fragility of their construction.
Working site specifically, Rowlands reveals the complex histories embedded within abandoned buildings and utilitarian forms. In opening up what seems impenetrable and inaccessible he challenges conventional readings of space and our emotional relationship to material surroundings. Rowlands explores the language of material things by calling attention to the presence they occupy in our lives. He surveys the often perplexing ways in which human presence can linger in diverse materialities and how these traces of the past affect us.
