Biography

Susana Romano is a graphics / web designer, digital artist and illustrator.

She devotes herself to the experimentation of techniques, a field from which she had evolved from her creative starts, painting, collage, etc.

She is also passionate about digital art, she had already started collaborating with Arte UNA, the digital artistic portal directed by Anahi Cáceres back in 1996.

Her interest is especially focused on the human figure, approached through different plastic techniques. Throughout her career as an artist, she has made a personal exploration of the behaviors and emotional states of the human being, transforming reality through the manipulation of images to convey her perception of the environment through aesthetic experiences.

She has immersed herself in the field of visual arts, because of the curiosity to express her concerns and the need to look for beauty as a way of expression and personal taste.

Her admiration for painting and surrealism is evident at the time of approaching her creations, in which a clear tendency can be observed to recreate atmospheres and situations distant from the pure reality, characterized by a delicate and poetic graphic style.

In addition to her personal work, she has produced numerous web designs for plastic artists, musicians, dancers and theater companies.

Artist Statement

It makes me happy to paint. First of all, I am that: a painter.

Brushes and oil paintings, digital art, collage and illustration, are my tools of expression and experimentation.

I grew drawing as if it were a game. The playful universe allowed me to laugh, repeat, process and transform.

I went through workshops of the most important painters of Argentina, who made me trust the brush, as an extension of my body, and my paintings, as an intimate and not so intimate journal of my life.

Anahi Caceres taught me the first concepts of digital art. One year later I won the prize for experimental technique at the Loft Gallery in Argentina.

Creating is an act of releasing emotions, an emotional liberation work that fascinates me. Observation inspires me. The search for images is the starting point to establish a series of relationships and ideas that generate a set of emotions that build my work. Then comes the observation of the other. Is that in the final process is the one who looks who gives meaning and completes the work.

My works are created on a computer in some cases with manual interventions. It uses aspects of photographic realism and surrealism to explore the human condition that results in a "mixture of fantasy and abstract symbolism"
