The paintings of the Ibicencan artist Romanie are a product of the inner work that is developed every time she picks up her brushes. The motifs and repetitive shapes we see are the inheritance of a childhood spent in the countryside in Ibiza in the 1970’s, whilst the embodied themes in the work arise from a constant spiritual search. For Romanie painting works as a medium rather than an end in itself.
The paintings take form whilst the artist establishes an inner dialogue and relates it to that which her hand paints freely upon the blank surface of the canvas or board. The first strokes are traced by chance, emerging from the subconscious, until the first defined forms appear; at this point a relationship begins between ideas, emotions and inner thoughts, turning into recognizable images as a result of the process.
Romanie began exhibiting her work in 2001 and paints practically every day in her house in the countryside of Ibiza.
When traveling she paints in her notepads and gathering ideas and images that appear in later works.
