Drawing on a range of sources from philosophy to linguistics to pop culture, Tony Romano’s work experiments with codes as living cultural forms. The artist’s sculptural pieces are playful renditions of Modernist sculpture, borrowing from the archetypal silhouettes of reclining nudes, but quite reflexively playing upon the minimalist, and austere tendencies with a contemporary, sly sensibility. Working within a family tradition of carpentry and iron work Romano uses these sculptures to explore the vernacular of his everyday materials and to examine the disparate worlds of daily working class labour with the more rarified world of the high art object. Combining references to history, as well as pop-culture and Romano’s own tendency for shape, color, use of material, and narrative, the works seem timeless, yet engaging and experimental.

TONY ROMANO (b. 1978, Toronto, Canada) obtained a BFA from the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design. Romano has shown his work extensively internationally including exhibitions in Canada, Austria and Sweden. Recent solo shows include The Last Act, Articule, Montreal, Onward Future, Oakville Galleries, and Notary Moon, MacLaren Art Gallery, Barrie as well as group shows such as The Way I Are, Blackwood Gallery, University of Toronto; You Don’t Really Care for Music, Do You?, Red Bull Projects, Toronto; Everything will be OK, No. 9 Projects, Toronto; and Air Conditioned Jungle, Diaz Contemporary, Toronto.
