TODD ROMANOWYCZ – FLORAL CONNECTION
Hosted By 19 Karen Contemporary Artspace
August 21st - September 18th, 2021
Todd Romanowycz has a unique style of painting with acrylic on acrylic sheets (Perspex).
The clean and sharp finish has a graphic quality and the works have a retro feel, often incorporating nostalgic elements such as old cars and bikes. This display features themes of landscape and still life, but is far from traditional.
Todd Romanowycz (Romy) grew up in Elliston on the remote West Coast of South Australia. He graduated with a Bachelor degree in visual art in 2001 and has been developing his style as an artist since then.
About this exhibition Todd says: “I started experimenting with acrylic artworks around a decade ago. In the beginning it was cutting, grinding, engraving and glueing to get the end result. Now days after much experimenting, my artworks are produced by the process of painting in reverse on the back of acrylic sheets. While also having a passion for landscaping/gardening it was a natural progression that I started painting still life paintings, in particular Australian natives. This latest group of paintings combines my love of working with acrylic and the beauty of Australian native flowers.”
