Johnny Romeo – ‘Dream-Land’
Hosted By 19 Karen Contemporary Artspace
May 28th - June 22nd, 2019
DREAM-LAND – Solo Show
Internationally acclaimed Australian Pop painter Johnny Romeo makes his triumphant return to the Gold Coast with his hypnotic new exhibition, DREAM-LAND.
Romeo takes a deep dive into the realm of the subconscious to create mind altering, kaleidoscopic new works that explore Surrealism’s fascination with dreams. The series is a thrilling homage to the work of renowned Surrealist Rene Magritte that has been masterfully curated by Romeo and Terri Lew of 19 Karen Contemporary Artspace.
In DREAM-LAND, Romeo takes his penchant for Surrealist imagery to dazzling new heights, transforming his inimitable Neo-Expressionist Pop stylings into engrossing dreamscapes that blur the lines between the real and the surreal. Buzzing with the energy and trippiness of a neon-drenched fever dream, the series delivers electrifying Kitsch Pop renditions of iconic Magritte works that showcase Australia’s King of Pop at his most psychedelic and sublime.
Opening 28th May until 22nd June at 19 Karen.
