Paul Romano’s “Cross Section”

Gallery 309 in Philadelphia recently opened 'Cross Section', a solo exhibition of works by accomplished artist Paul Romano. The illuminating and often unsettling figures reveal traces of characters from history and dark myths, as well as figurative personifications of the emotive language Romano has culled over the years. The captivating works are imbued with a synthesis of dark romance and the threat of peril, within the scope of the complex human experience, adding a simultaneous sense of both dread and hope. A closing reception will be held on April 30. Take a look at more work after the jump.
