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. 

Rohan's carefully composed paintings reveal a love of pattern, detail and colour. Her emotive patterns are drawn from everyday images such as foliage and clothing and suggest a psychological depth that often appears as a struggle or a surrender between the figures and their surrounds. The details in Rohan's paintings are all-consuming, pushed towards the limits of reality. 

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. In 2016, Rohan was selected as a finalist in the prestigious Archibald Prize in her first attempt. Her work is held in private and public collections in Australia, including Artbank, Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, the University of Queensland Art Museum, Mater Children’s Hospital and the Griffith University Collection.

Monica Rohan selected as a finalist in the Archibald Prize 2020

Monica Rohan has been selected as a finalist in the Archibald Prize 2020 with her portrait of artist Lucy Culliton.

About the work, Rohan says: ‘Lucy is a beloved Australian artist known for her paintings of the vibrant garden and animal sanctuary of her home, as well as its rugged surrounds. I wanted to paint Lucy’s portrait because I feel we share an interest in celebrating colours and patterns found in the everyday. As we walked through her beautiful garden, I had Lucy stand beneath a selection of her favourite flowering trees. I wanted my painting to represent the natural connection Lucy has to the landscape she’s nurtured at her home. While working on the portrait back in my small studio in Brisbane, bushfires raged down south, creating a strange juxtaposition between the lush haven of Lucy’s garden in early spring and the harsh reality playing out on the news.’⁠
