While legend dictates that there’s supposedly a honey pot to be discovered at the end of a rainbow, when it comes to what’s usually promised at the business end of a lightning strike, the outcome typically takes a turn for the worse. Still, Richard Rowan is a hugely popular contemporary landscape artist who prefers to pictorially dwell on the positives, rather than any perceived negatives, yet not necessarily sugar-coating his graphically distinguishing pieces. ‘Lucky Strike’ tells the beguilingly illustrative short story of a fork of lightening making sudden contact with the earth beneath the leaden skies from which it’s fired; yet reserves all of its visual drama and intense compositional atmosphere for the artistic delivery, as is habitually the case with Rowan’s every release. This autumn 2017 Rowan has chosen to pictorially describe one of the various sketches of the countryside that he routinely commits to paper for our eyes only, with just 150 hand-signed iterations of this 32” squared new release.
