Elinor Rowlands

Elinor Rowlands is a painter and multidisciplinary artist. As a Neurodivergent woman, her work is reflective of the autistic experience. For Rowlands, emotions are felt deeply and move quickly with incredible speed, from grief to joy in quick succession. Creativity has always been an important means of expression. Her works on paper and canvas use rich and vibrant colours that are incredibly striking and emotive. Her body of work is diverse and spans portraiture to the abstract. Rowlands has a particular signature process to creating. She uses both of her hands at the same time, often in place of brushes or other creative tools; captivated by sensory art-making and the use of repetitive, rhythmic gestures that are both ritualistic and seeing.
