The deeply emotional Famine sculpture at Custom House Quay, alongside the River Liffey in Dublin is perhaps Rowan’s best known piece. Migrants, (or Famine part 2) which depicts a group of figures arriving on the other side of the Atlantic, has just been unveiled to critical acclaim. It forms the centrepiece of the prestigious Ireland Park on Toronto’s waterfront.
A highly illustrated, sensitively designed large format book. It provides an insight to the creative process as well as an alluring catalogue of Rowan’s work. Includes a detailed biography of the artist and discusses his idiosyncratic bronze-casting techniques in depth.
Published to coincide with the unveiling of Rowan’s most recent piece, Proclamation, opposite Dublin’s Kilmainham Gaol.
