DEEP, a solo exhibition

"Paintings were objects long before they were pictures, in the sense that sculpture and architecture are objects. All three arts were integrated in their materialization of the otherworldly. Art was a form of worship. As a child, Romaniello was put in a state of quiet reverence by an exhibition of Medieval polychrome sculpture. With his Furrows series, he has similarly created objects that are not objects, objects that by insisting upon their proportions, dimensions, rhythms, and color, transport the viewer to a here and now that, bereft of definitive iconography, is inexhaustibly mysterious." –Vittorio Colaizzi
