MIKE ROWLAND, WILD
1. (Of an animal) living in nature without human control or care: not tame
2. Uncontrolled or unrestrained, esp. in pursuit of pleasure
The first solo exhibition by Mike Rowland, Wild, is about highlighting the connection we have to the natural world. The series depicts creatures in those unrestrained moments of pleasure; living without human control or care. Taking inspiration in Byron Bay, it was here where Rowland had an encounter with a migrating Humpback Whale during a morning swim. The experience gave him an instant sense of perspective. It led Rowland to reflect on wild life; life that is living without human interference. It is this very experience that inspired him to make those moments visible.
