Abstract Pointillism

 

In his abstract pointillism, Rowe builds raw emotions in layers of expansive primary tones, shielding the intensity with a lattice-work veil of exacting dots that does its best to clothe the bared soul. Inspired by the precision and playfulness of Yayoi Kusama's work, the artist has also been influenced by the aboriginal dot art of his homeland. 

One can feel the intensity of the highs and lows, experiencing the entire spectrum of humanity and our inherent desire to make order and perfection from the chaos. Hidden written messages hide behind the dots, subliminally persuading us that everything is going to be okay. Every piece is both a self-portrait and an abstraction about life and love. And although there is a sense of imposed calm, each piece tells its own overwhelming, beautiful, sometimes heart-wrenching story.

This contemporary art series is available in large scale works.
