All Will Always Be Unwhole. Ink, charcoal and chalk. Tonight I have a closing reception with @steffslaughter Stephanie Slate at Salon 1522 a renegade gallery at 1522 Lawrence Street. Philadelphia, to compliment Stephanie’s fantastic platinum prints I am showing some of my rarely seen large cyanotypes. Come out into the frozen wasteland, 6-9pm.
"Minus" toned cyanotype, 40x40", one of the works I will be showing in "From Oblivion" a two person show with Stephanie Slate @steffslaughter and myself. Stephanie’s work is incredible - other worldly platinum/palladium prints that hold in them, lost histories, narratives of shadow and the esoteric. Opening tomorrow evening, January 3, 6-9pm, at Salon 1522, 1522 N Lawrence St. 19123. #paulromano #stephanieslate #alternativeprocess #nonsilver #cyanotype #platinum #fromoblivion
