Profile

Jon Rowland exhibits in London and Oxford.

"I work predominantly in acrylics but increasingly mix the media to include oil, ink and collage. Mt paintings are in the UK and elsewhere."

Jon's paintings have been displayed at a number of galleries in London including the Royal Academy., and shown at galleries in London and Oxfordshire. He has had solo exhibitions at Wolfson, as resident Artweeks Artist, and Said Business School galleries, which has a number of Jon's paintings on loan, and most recently a successful and critically acclaimed exhibition at the Sewell Centre Gallery . Jon works in series, and much of his work is built around themes of rural landscapes and cityscapes - most recently in the south west of UK, Clovelly Beach in Sydney, Kerala in India and Siracusa in Sicily - exploring colour and space, and the nature of detail - part of the 'Colouration' theme on this website. He is increasingly interested in the presentation of 'feeling' in art.

Jon is pleased to partner Wychwood Art Gallery selling contemporary art on-line and through galleries in London and the Cotswolds. The paintings shown on their website are a selection of current and recent paintings that follow these themes.  If you like one of the series and would like to see more, please contact [email protected] or http://www.wychwoodart.com

His work has been exhibited by Wychwood Art at the Battersea Art Fair.
