Alessandro Roma: Enclosure

7 June - 13 July 2013

Paradise Row presents Enclosure the first UK solo exhibition by Alessandro Roma. Comprising painting, collage and sculpture Enclosure elaborates Roma's fascination with landscape and in particular the idea and varied form of the garden.

 

Just as the garden is a site where humans temporarily check the wild contingency of nature and so hold order and chaos in tense balance, Roma's works enclose within them a carefully linked array of planes, perspectives, materials, surfaces and forms all held in an exquisite visual expression of equipoise.

His work has also been the subject of numerous solo shows including exhibitions at Brand New Gallery, Milan, Museum Mart Trento, Italy, Scaramouche, New York, Marabini Gallery, Bologna. In 2007, Roma won the 4th International Painting Prize  Diputación  de Castellón run by the Museo de Bellas Artes, Castellon, Spain. Roma was Künstlerhäuser Worpswede artist in residence 2008 - 2009.  Roma lives and works in London.
