Simard Bilodeau Contemporary is pleased to present Vestiges of Our Times, a solo exhibition by Alfredo Romero. This collection is the culmination of many years of experimental techniques, and an observance of Mexico, a country in flux.

 

Alfredo Romero has experimented greatly in technique and process   over the years. Currently, he is focused on expressing the ideals of restoration, conservation and transcendence. Romero accomplishes this through a process called “strappo” which is used by  anthropologists and conservators to detach paintings and murals from walls. Romero applies this technique to decrepit and deteriorating facades of urban buildings throughout Mexico, “Trapping it, appropriating it, and endowing it with transcendence and perpetuity.”
