Hannah Rowan (b.1990) lives and works in London, UK. is an artist who makes sculptural works that meditate on the relationship between the slow geological time of natural processes and the fast paced, technology-driven frenetic activity of humans. She utilises both synthetic and organic materials in her ephemeral, multifaceted constructions. She recently completed her Masters in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art, London. She has attended residencies at The Scottish Sculpture Workshop (2019), The Banff Centre, Canada (2015, 2018), The Vermont Studio Centre (2016), VT and The Wassaic Project, NY (2016). She is the recipient of Arts Council England Grants for the Arts funding and the Gilbert Bayes Scholarship in Sculpture. Her work has been featured in print publication Perpetual Inventory Vol III, Offline Press, 2018.
