Enchanting light and the inclusion of delightful details adds to the magical caught-in-the-moment quality of Spanish artist Vicente Romero’s pastel figure paintings. Romero’s depictions of intimate moments, featured in the August 2012 issue of Pastel Journal, are carefully arranged: a beautifully embroidered cloth held to the light, a sleeping form among crumpled sheets, a book cast aside. These details indicate a Romantic point of view of these pastel figures, behind which lies an analytical and rational mind.
Artist Vicente Romero (http://vicenteromero.wordpress.com) currently lives in the Costa Brava region of Spain where he finds endless inspiration in the incredible Mediterranean light. The artist has enjoyed regular solo exhibitions of his work in Spain, France and Portugal since the 1990s. His work is represented in France by the Little Gallery in St. Emilion; in Britain by Petley’s of London; and in Spain by Benedito in Malaga, Puerta de Alcalá in Madrid, and by Pizarro in Valencia.
