    About the artist

    Julian Rowe’s practice is a kind of cultural archaeology, seeking contemporary resonances and metaphors in the ideas and cultural baggage of the past. He has a particular interest in the language of the miniature and its relationship to theories of the sublime. It is a practice in which assemblage, sculptural techniques, model making, painting and video all play significant roles. He has shown work internationally, and undertaken a number of public commissions.

    Julian is currently part of the Make Research Cluster at the University for the Creative Arts. He has a BA (Hons) in Philosophy and Art History from the Open University in 1984 and MA Fine Art from the University for the Creative Arts, Canterbury in 2010. Solo and group exhibitions include I’d Like To See The Governor Now Please..., Parfitt Gallery, Croydon (2012); Atlantis, Rochester Cathedral (2011); NordArt, Kunstwerk Carlshütte, Budelsdorf, Germany (2011); Turn the Key Deftly, Quay Arts Centre, Newport, Isle of Wight (2009); Journey to the Centre of the Earth, 20/21 Visual Arts Centre, Scunthorpe (2009) The Garden of Earthly Delights, The Walled Garden, Brockwell Park, Brixton (2004); 1ère Biennale de la Sculpture du Pays de Bray, Neufchatel-en-Bray, France (1999) and Rebound, Site Galley, Sheffield (1995).
