Kevin Rolph’s work mainly focuses on installations. He feels that in an installation, he can express himself, and look deeply into whatever subject that he’s working on at the time, thus finding new angles and perspectives to involve the viewer. Whether it’s an interactive, performative, or immersive installation, he invites the viewer to experience something of the subject at hand.
Rolph chooses themes that are based on the sea and coast in the southwest of England; there is so much to be explored and passed on to the public. The subject matter of each body of work determines the materials and the forms the artwork takes. Each project often consists of multiple works that are layered together as murals, including video, installations, sound, animation and projection to express his works to the viewer.
