ABSTRKT® is pleased to present an exhibition of Victor Roman’s new works, curated by Ché Morales. Roman, who attended the Parsons School of Design, has been creating this body of work for the past two and a half years. Roman has been exploring the connection and similarities between the World Wide Web and the Wild Wild West. This current exhibition includes eight new works comprised of colorful imagery, bold shapes, and familiar icons that bring in the viewer to points of exploration and nostalgia. WWW. will be on view from August 16 through August 31, 2018 at Catinca Tabacaru Gallery located on 250 Broome Street, with an opening reception held on Thursday, August 16 from 6-8 pm.
This work is a union between two very different worlds that ultimately live by the same rules of lawlessness. I think it is important to question the nuances of the past in order better understand our current motivations and so, through a patchwork of narratives, WWW. becomes a reflection of our experiences in what I call the new digital frontier.
Victor Roman is a contemporary artist and designer from New York City. His painting style echoes his illustrative talents through his use of clean sharp lines, powerful use of color and the seamless appearance of his hand painted pieces. His most recent works explore his personal relationship and internal struggle between his two crafts of illustration and paint, as well as the current generational battle between the organic and the digital world. Roman utilizes multiple mediums to amplify his personal observations and curiosities while inviting his audience to navigate with him, through a digitally enhanced world.
