Persephone’s Ecstasy, oil on panel, artist designed and finished frame. On display @lastritesgallery for The 13th Hour, opening tonight! I designed this frame with Persephone’s myth in mind. At the top there is an abstraction of a pomegranate, the fruit of the underworld she consumed that forever bound her to the Underworld. 

Myth, fable, fairy tale, the collective unconscious are huge influences upon my work. I believe that these tales and dreams draw maps, hold keys, navigate us through life’s oceans; the calms and the storms (hills and valleys for those landlocked). I am conflicted with Persephone’s story. Her abduction by Hades is more than a bit rough. However, who she becomes because of this is fantastic - a formidable Queen of the Underworld whose mixture of sorrow and joy, travels above and below bring about the cycle of the seasons; winter into harvest. This of course mirrors any and everyone’s personal experiences with living in the barren as well as the plentiful.

Throwback Thursday: I know I just posted that image a few weeks back of myself standing with this beast. It was out to be rephotographed for the upcoming reissue I am working on for @mastodonrocks, @relapserecords. Since it’s original release in 2004, I’ve worked into the painting. I didn’t alter it as much as refine some things that always bothered me. It was important to keep the relic in tact as much as possible. This as well as new artworks will be part of the upcoming edition. It will be a great companion piece to the Remission set. 

So, after about 8 years of being out of print, I’ve released an open edition of Leviathan. The print is 12x12, Archival pigment print on 330gsm Epson hotpress, and of course, signed. While the edition is open, the duration will be limited. Here is the direct link: http://tinyurl.com/nfec3ym . Prints start shipping October 17. #paulromano #leviathan #tbt

I finally managed to find the time to grab my copies of the Remission reissue that I created for @mastodonrocks & @relapserecords. I am so excited at how it came out. I understand there are still some copies of the ox blood vinyl available as well as the CD (3d embossed horse on the cd cover). 

Also available on my site (paulromanoworks.com) are prints of the image there of the saintly figure riding the clouds conversing with the moon - “Consequences We Have Paid”.

Throwback Thursday: A version of the Remission horse that I made originally for a shirt design for Mastodon’s first tour of Japan (circa 2003). Japanese woodblock prints have long been an influence on my work; in particular Kuniyoshi and Yoshitoshi. This panel now appears in the reissue of Remission available @relapserecords. I’ve always loved that album and it was great to have the opportunity to reconsider my work from over a decade ago. 

Also, I made a screen print of this back in 2009. Some are still available over at:

My friend Caitlin’s (@mister_caitlin) show, Interhaven, opens this evening @paradigmgs (746 S 4th St. Phila.). Her lattice remains of creatures great and small, fill the room with an overwhelming yet quiet resonance. If you are close to Philly, the show is a must see.  #caitlinmccormack  #interhaven  #rehearsalforextinceanatomies (at Paradigm Gallery + Studio)
