Monica Rohan creates intriguing self-portraits, depicting figures engulfed in their vivid settings and surrounds. Intricately detailed, her paintings and drawings are playful and narrative-driven, conveying her sense of imagination; in Rohan’s works, viewers can imagine taking cover under a pile of laundry or climbing walls filled with ivy. Dreamy and familiar, Rohan’s delicate detail and style draw the viewer into her imaginary world. 

Rohan graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art with Honours from Queensland College of Art in 2010. She has since exhibited in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. Her work is held in private and public collections in Australia, including at Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, the University of Queensland Art Museum, Mater Children’s Hospital and in the Griffith University Collection.
