Toronto-based Tony Romano works primarily in film, sculpture, installation and photography. His recent work reflects his ongoing interests in narrative, popular culture and philosophy and his practice involves reinventing the formal strategies of cinema through works that explore concepts of love, city and identity. His work adapts these strategies and ideas focusing on the writing of Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard, the scientific experiments of Dorothy Retallack as well as ideas from the mid-19th century American Transcendental movement.
Tony Romano received his BFA from the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design. Recent solo shows include: T&T at Clint Roenisch Gallery in Toronto, Last Act at Articule in Montreal, and Onward Future at Oakville Galleries. Recent group shows include: The Way I Are, Blackwood Gallery, University of Toronto; You Don’t Really Care for Music, Do You?, Red Bull Projects, Toronto; and Everything will be OK, No. 9 Projects, Toronto.
