Crawling Through Glass
Work by Armando Román
On View March 4th – 26th, 2023

“I am an artist who makes work on paper. My work combines digital brushstrokes with physical marks made often with crayon, colored pencils, and washable marker. Color, pattern, and abstraction are weapons I use with the aim of disrupting the systems of order I was raised to believe were right. Color is bodily. Colors are sublime, and the act of coloring is a deeply devotional one. In my compositions, I consider white (space) to be an enemy. I fill my drawings with as much color and patterning as I can. The paper I use, however, works against me. In a drawing full of color, a visible layer of untouchable white space remains.”
Armando Román is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in the Midwest. He received his BFA in Studio Arts from Denison University and his MFA in Visual Arts from The Ohio State University. His drawings traverse themes of religion, homosexuality, community, and the self.
