This gorgeous photographic composite Kaleidoscope print framed in a light box is by Kalyana Thiru, a Sri Lankan aritst who now lives locally in Dumbo.
Michael Anderson’s The Dark Knight Dyptich (Batman, above and The Joker, below) was created from torn and collaged subway posters. Several of the same poster are needed to make these. I love the effect he achieves by layering the images. It says so much about the nature of identity.
These Black and White Photos were taken by Nicholas Syracuse in the home of the late Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan! How crazy is that?
Kawaii Doll is a 3D Printed multicolor composite sculpture from German artist Eric Van Straaten.
Check out the amazing detail of this piece!
Lu Zhang’s Twins (a double image of the artist) offers her commentary on the one child policy in her homeland of China.
This folk art string instrument is a carved wood and metal One Man Band from Mississippi, (c 1920 – 30’s). Artist is Unknown.
This one is called Blissful Ignorance By Lori Field, an artist we are very happy to have discovered at the Gallery!
Martin Wittfooth’s Smoke Signals shows that he continues to be a cutting edge force in the contemporary art world.
The Hider By Robert Bowen: so great.
Two more fantastic pieces from the Hopi Dream series by artist Peca, a welcome staple of every Romano Gallery show.
Poseidon By Eric Richardson.
Hannah Faith Yata’s Black Mascara is one of my very favorite pieces from the show. She’s amazing!
