Rowan Siddons – Artist: Printmaker
Rowan has recently finished studying for a Masters in Printmaking at Camberwell College of Art, London. Intrigued by architecture and the changing urban environment, Rowan uses the techniques of intaglio and relief printing to delineate his perceptions of the evolving urban landscape.
“I find myself when I am lost.”
My current practice attempts to convey an amalgamating ambiguity of space, place and time, whilst questioning our perception of the evolving urban landscape. I use ingenuity within the etching process to attain textural marks whilst travelling, this fabricates an atmospheric and transient aesthetic precipitating an element of the psyche. Positive and negative space is exerted as a reference to the theories of place and non-place in conjunction with ideologies of smooth and striated space. Through combining this with an interest in psychogeography, I apply facades, architectural structures and textural aesthetics to depict both my psychological and physical experience when traversing within the dense urban environment.
