Paul Romano – What do you see here?…
Private View 5.30-8pm Thursday 27th September – until 27th October
We are very pleased to be showing new works from one of our favourite artists. His work is always fresh and shows his continued excitment in the imageryof his environment, contemporary pop culture and the influence of his favourite artists.
Paul has always cited grafitti as an influence and his work has always featured found ephemera and inspiration from the walls of the city. These pieces are much closer to those infuences and show a vibrancy and immediacy found in those images. His paintings have an emotional immediacy that is completely engaging and yet continues to reward further analysis. His use of colour, texture and composition is assured and considered.
His painting is never completely abstract and it’s often easy to see symbols and glimpses of architectural features.He also admits the influence of living in a maritime city with its images of ships and an industrial heritage.
Paul seldom exhibits outside the North West but has works in private collections in London, New York and the Far East. He has quietly developed a loyal following in his hometown of Liverpool and is becoming increasingly admired by collectors and his peers.
