Mesmerising, ethereal, elusive and arguably one of nature's most impressive displays, the Northern Lights have proved a worthy subject for this latest body of work by Richard Rowan, Aurora Borealis.The aurora is a notoriously difficult subject matter for photographers or artists to capture because of its sheer magnitude and the subtle variations of colour, but Richard's artistic practice demands that he challenge himself by undertaking difficult work and forging new techniques. His precise and painstaking 'back to front" method of applying oils to glass, working from the foreground backwards, lends itself beautifully to the subject matter. With each layer needing two weeks to dry before the aurora was added as the final element, timing truly is everything.Aurora Borealis is a collection of Original and Limted Edition Prints on glass each hand signed by Richard and Framed.A limited edition print on glass, framed and hand signed by the artist.
