Miguel Romero

In my work the issues I explore the most are alienation, perception, and the beauty and fragility of being human. Also important are liberty and happiness as conscious decisions, and tenacity’s innate value-that is, one that needs no other support but its’ own conviction.

The unspectacular nature of the materials I use (paper, paint, iron, wood, aluminum, wax, canvas) supports those ideals: it is the artist’s vision and determination what makes his or her work valuable, and not the technique employed.

The more fragile the work, the more ethereal it is; the more flexible, the stronger. That is what I think, what I believe. The works in this webpage express those beliefs, which are what I am-and without comprising all in me, they reveal a bit of all of us. Their enjoyment is purely emotional and intimate-so, enjoy!
