A fascinating glimpse into the world of renowned Irish sculptor Rowan Gillespie, whose stature in the international art scene has grown immensely in recent years.

The deeply emotional Famine sculpture at Custom House Quay, alongside the River Liffey in Dublin is perhaps Rowan’s best known piece. Migrants, (or Famine part 2) which depicts a group of figures arriving on the other side of the Atlantic, has just been unveiled to critical acclaim. It forms the centrepiece of the prestigious Ireland Park on Toronto’s waterfront. A highly illustrated, sensitively designed large format book.

It provides an insight to the creative process as well as an alluring catalogue of Rowan’s work. Includes a detailed biography of the artist and discusses his idiosyncratic bronze-casting techniques in depth.

Published to coincide with the unveiling of Rowan’s most recent piece, Proclamation, opposite Dublin’s Kilmainham Gaol.
