Mark Making in Public Places

Children's Play Ground

This is an ongoing and personal project about presence and the insistence of being seen. I find it very hard to get my head around the fact that even sitting down, blood is moving through my body at about 6kmph. It’s almost impossible to imagine this constant state of flux, things happening, regenerating, dying, within […]

Ça Suffit, Sophie

Krakow 1993

Speigel im speigel, Krakow, 1993, Tina Rowe. I’ve been thinking about Sophie Calle’s Suite Venitienne where the artist followed a bloke she met at a party in Paris to Venice secretly photographing him. Calle’s practice was already kind of stalky so this extension of following and photographing random people should not have been that surprising. […]

Live Animation

Live Animation https://tinarowe.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/reeds.mp4 I went for a walk last Sunday and took an instax that doesn’t belong to me. I’ve thought a lot about how an image emerges using instant film. coupling it with the timelapse function on my phone. There is something comforting about being able to control things even in a small way […]


Process is a fundamental element of every piece of work I make. With this artwork I was considering how the environment is an actor in any event and not just a backdrop or tool. Cyanotype is a photographic process that can be done away from the darkroom. The 19th C botanist Anna Atkins used it […]

Covid Commemoration

Riitta Composite Soup Suite

I spent the first lockdown about 10 seconds away from my studio which is in a set of buildings that had been a Victorian dairy. The farmers used to bring their cows up from the marshes to be milked, it must have been quite a sight, a herd coming up the hill and then through […]


Horizontal Composite

I am interested in the kinds of paintings that straddle the religious and secular worlds in western art, particularly when opulence was intended because opulence and ‘tastelessness’ are frequent bedfellows. I find it interesting that elements from cultures that are also frequently denigrated are co-opted to allow the subject to be expressed in a way […]

Little Races

Little Races

I am a mixed race transracial adoptee or TRA. I was adopted in 1964 into an established white family with three sons. My family were part of the aspirational middle class and all of the people I knew and loved were white. I was a happy child until I started school and began to encounter […]

Covid commemoration Callout

My usual response to a crisis is go to the pub, have a nice cold beer and wait for it all to blow over. Well that’s not really working as from Thursday 5th November 2020, the Winchester and all the other boozers are once again closed, except for takeouts, though not booze, or something, I […]
