Amanda Rowan's provocative still life and self-portrait images depict playful and sensual moments, eliciting humor through an exploration of the power and vulnerability of sexuality. Rowan is both curator and subject in each richly styled vignette depicting moments of mysticism, domesticity, and seduction. With a mix of visual iconography, including food advertising, vintage pinup, and religious deities, Amanda's images feel personal and relatable.
