With a degree in Textiles from the Royal College of Art, Rowan Mersh experiments with form by exploring and celebrating the natural qualities of materials that he uses for the creation of extraordinary works. His hard, sculptural, shell pieces are famous for their fluidity and soft-like aesthetic that he creates by painstakingly hand assembling each shell into mesmerising patterns.
In 2017, “Praeteritum, Praesens et Futurum” marked the first solo show of the artist with the gallery.
Rowan Mersh’s sculptures have been acquired by major private and public collections worldwide, most notably the Victoria & Albert Museum, Jerwood and The Crafts Council collections. His commissions and special projects include works for the Mercury Music Prize, Fendi and Veuve Clicquot. His Asabikeshiinh (Dreamcatcher) was awarded the Moët Hennessy Prize as Best Contemporary Design at PAD London 2016.
