HOME / ARTISTS / Conway Rowland
I am a self-taught artist and have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember.
Originally trained as an engineer, I have spent most of my working life outside on the land on farms of different kinds, working with lots of old machinery on the way.
I have over the last couple of years dedicated myself to my art full time, working from our home in beautiful rural Carmarthenshire.
My art is about capturing moments. Experienced moments easily lost or forgotten. Real moments from our collective past, with meaning and resonance, that no one captured at the time. Imagined moments that sweep through the mind inexplicably, representative of something wider than themselves. For me, the detail matters almost as much as the expression.
I work exclusively in oil paint, which over the years I have found to give the greatest opportunity to express the subtleties of light and colour that are the real register of human experience.
