Romolo Del Deo

"Romolo's artwork exists on two levels: one of pure aesthetic balance and beauty, and another of mysterious and evocative narrative. His bronzes seem to be shards from an ancient culture yet are hauntingly contemporary. They refer to his archeological studies, but none portrays a recognizable figure or myth. Playing with the acculturated baggage of classical icons, Romolo's work mirrors the present art world's fractured individuality and inspiration. When creating these relics, Romolo first makes complete figures, then fragments them to their bare essentials. Considering life as bittersweet, he transforms perfect form into fragments that express the contrasting forces of perpetual beauty and passing time..” - Alexander J.
