On Friday, May 1, 2015, Arch Enemy Arts proudly celebrates Paul Romano’s new solo exhibition ‘Boundless’. This is his first solo show since 2012 and his first hometown solo since 2011.

Philadelphia based artist Paul Romano began his career in the 90’s as an in-house illustrator and software designer. This path eventually flourished into a multitude of opportunities though none seemed quite as fulfilling as his passionate journey into the realms of fine arts.

In his captivating new collection, ‘Boundless’, the enduring nuances of melancholia, growth, and descent portray unique visions of the human spirit. Infusing elements of hope and loss, his surreal contemporary work is sure to immerse viewers in a virtually tangible state of pure imagination.

Don’t miss this truly unique opportunity to view and purchase his esteemed work.

“As with all my work, [Boundless] is a mixture of personal experience and how these relate to broader archetypes that most people encounter throughout life. Symbolism plays a huge role in my work. Whether it be through palette, a figure’s gesture or expression, an animal, flora, a historical figure, and so on. I am not as interested in reality as I am in the ideas of it in imagination. While I use realism as a vehicle, the works are more about evocation rather than accuracy. Boundless does have a leaning in the melancholy, contemplating ideas of oneself through tribulation and loss and then, what remains. What is left is hopeful, the vastness of one self, not defined by outside perceptions, or objects, or a place, or a relationship. Flora appears quite often in these works. The meaning could be as simple as hope and growth, beauty but sometimes for myself these growths are cancerous. My use of it is more paradoxical than clear-cut. The works are a way of me asking questions of myself. “
