In this painting a Renaissance woman twists a rope in her hands whilst a bouy is tossed around upon the open sea, all the while Dounreay power station is looming in the background.

Rowena's fascination with power stations can be traced back to her interest in the notion of the 'sublime'. The 'sublime' is a concept that interprets terror, drama and intense personal emotions, and then applies them in an aesthetic form to explain the human condition. Rowena wants her paintings of power stations to highlight some of the dangers of contemporary life; drawing our attention to the contrast between their status as a provider and potential source of catastrophe.
