In Monica Rohan’s earlier works, exaggerated, detailed patterns envelop figures in surreal spaces that blur the boundary between comfort and menace and express the way our mind intensifies and distorts experience. In Nowhere Near, Rohan shifts her focus towards the structures of chairs and trees which become extensions of the figures and their world. Rohan’s elongation of chair and human legs propels the figures to dizzying heights, replacing the smothering depths of pattern with a precarious vertigo. As in past work, there is a sense of both peril and safety as the figures teeter dangerously but ultimately remain supported by the chairs and trees.

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 Griffith University.
