The Billowing Flag
Span Gallery, Melbourne, Australia, 2004
Giuseppe Romeo’s constructions are no different from other human constructs if perhaps a bit more honest. Ever a voyeur he places the viewers in his looking glass. These are the moving figures in his soot landscape. He reflects rather than represents. Each work mirrors another and catches the audience in doing so. Enter the room and there is an immediate complicity. Willing or otherwise. Original sin. Artifice.
