August Featured Artist

Every month we’ll be putting the spotlight on selected artists from our European Prospects database. This month’s featured artist is the latest addition to the platform, Pauline Rowan. With a background in Fine Art, her predominately lens based works incorporate documentary as well as collaborative and performative elements. Check out the link below to view images from her work ‘Under A Vaulted Sky’ in which Rowan worked closely with a small community of people and explored their relationship to a de-consecrated convent and its abandoned gardens, all of which were marked for demolition.
