Amitai Romm’s (b. 1985) apocalyptical post industrial aesthetics interrogates the idea of an ever reconfiguring world. His collages as well as his ready mades give place to barely recognisable fragments of human presence. Those fragments are related between each other. Together they form a network of relationships that become the artist’s visual space.
Romm’s colour photogravure is in part recycling of elements from his previous work. It inhabits different logics and different types of imagery that together combine a framework characterised by ambiguous attitudes. The artist manages to recreate a collage structure in work with printmaking by creating a flamboyant colour composition structured through carefull orchestration of five photopolymer plates. The optical frames of the composition conduct the spectator’s gaze to the core of the gravure – a laser cut hole – introducing this way a third dimension to his work.
