Jon Rowland: Heartlands

Jon Rowland works in mixed-media using oils, acrylics and collage. This vocabulary has led to an exciting body of work for this exhibition, Heartlands. The themes for Jon’s paintings have emerged from places that are important to him. Lockdown and the release from confinement have both had an impact.

Jon concentrates on colour and space, exposing the essence of ‘place’ and expressing the sentiments of this analysis. There’s a story to each of Jon’s paintings and, like any journey, there are unexpected outcomes.

In the last 15 years, Jon has held solo exhibitions at Said Business School, Sewell Centre Gallery, Wolfson College, Jam Factory, Cornerstone Arts Centre and The Barn Gallery. His works have appeared at Battersea Arts Fair and in Tatler magazine, and he has been commissioned, through Wychwood Art, for a number of largescale paintings.
