Primarily working with wood, Rowe creates intriguing objects that draw the viewer into fascinating new worlds. Beginning with science fiction, Rowe now finds inspiration within science and nature to bring to the forefront previously un-noticed, lines, shapes and angles creating complex geometric structures.

Rowe undertakes meticulous research into his starting ideas; using geometrical shapes and mathematical laws applied in science and nature, he plays with notions of scale. Pulling down macro-objects such as asteroids and planets and blowing up micro-organisms, molecules and atoms, showing us their often overlooked, complex structures and frameworks, reflecting them back to us, as we encounter these new, and sometimes unrecognisable manifestations.

Rowe is a member of the Royal Society of Sculptors and an Academician at The Royal West of England Academy
