On this piece, Andrew Rowbottom has demonstrated his traditional printmaking skills. The work is clean and pure. The background is all blue, gradually brightened in the middle, with all the focus on the top-left corner. There is a small beach village with a green land above it, which is connected to a lighthouse. Below the lighthouse, there is a row of faint hand sketched buildings. Curious imagery seems to emerge from here.
On this print, Andrew says: "The picture is untitled because it is an alien. Give the alien time I ask and it will show itself to you.
Andrew Rowbottom was born in 1975 in Stalybridge, Cheshire and attended the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee. During his degree course he learned traditional printmaking skills in order to develop a creative practice in printmaking. The work also involved research into art history and theory, which informed his interest in art therapy and art for the blind. His work was shown in the Duncan of Jordanstone exhibition in 1997, with Painting in Hospitals, Scotland in 1998 and in the Royal Scottish Academy’s annual exhibition in 1998, as well as holding a solo exhibition on the Internet in 1997.
