Simard Bilodeau Contemporary is pleased to present Vestiges of Our Times is a solo exhibition by Alfredo Romero. This collection is the culmination of many years of experimental techniques and an observance of Mexico, a country in flux.
Alfredo Romero has experimented in technique and process over the years. Currently focusing on expressing the ideals of restoration. Romero accomplishes this through a process called “strappo” which is used by anthropologists and conservators to detach paintings from walls. Romero applies this technique to deteriorating facades of urban buildings throughout Mexico, “Trapping them, appropriating them, and endowing them with transcendence and perpetuity.” View less
