Through his hyper real and high key chromatic oil paintings, Jack Rowland aims to alter our perception of the natural world and urges us to re-discover our surroundings. In Illusive Reality, Rowland present us with a new series of work in which he has transformed the familiar Australian landscape into an unfamiliar, dreamlike, or even alien environment. At times eerie, psychedelic or seductive, Rowland shows us our environments ability to change and suggests that this powerful force affects us all.

Jack Rowland holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting) from RMIT University. He recently completed a residency with Takt, Berlin and his work was shown in a number of exhibitions whilst in Germany including Naturlich!, Kunstraum Tapir, Berlin and Above From Below, The Cellar Gallery, Berlin. Rowland is represented by Anna Pappas Gallery.
