Phantasmaphile - Bernardo Roman Palau
Bernardo Roman Palau was born in Mexico and studied in Florance, Italy. His recent work leans toward melancholy and this reflects its intimate character. He makes figurative oil paintings accentuating light and shadow to add a theatrical quality with a warm palette of colors. Most of his characters in his paintings show some peculiarities, like missing limbs or some longer than normal (for Palau this represents the attempt to exceed their condition), sometimes unfinished, but even in this state they stay in balance, like they are floating supported by the space that contains them.
