Careless Whispers, an Oil Painting and Integral Frame by Paul Romano, 2016

About

Careless Whispers By Paul Romano Oil on paper, on panel, artist designed and engraved frame (wood and acrylic) Pencil signed and dated to reverse. Paul Romano is an artist and designer, raised and educated (University of the Arts and PAFA) in Philadelphia, where he still works and resides. Romano's work reached a global audience in the 2000s through his work in the music industry building brands and visual identities for such artists as Mastodon, Trivium, Dälek, Withered, We Came As Romans and many more. Romano has been exhibiting his Fine art since 2009 with such galleries as Last Rites Gallery, Arch Enemy Arts, Paradigm Arts and Thinkspace. Paul’s work aligns itself with allegory and looks to such Symbolists as Baudelaire, Wilde, Moreau, Redon, Böcklin as guidance counselors. Careless Whispers takes the Classic theme of death and the Maiden and filters through the pop culture reference of George Michael’s Careless Whispers. The lyric “We could have lived this dance forever” is engraved across the bottom of the frame. The song title and lyric taken out of context and paired with incongruous imagery, to that of the original intent of the song, Romano created a new harmony, a new story for both the Classic theme (Death and the Maiden) and the song. Romano often conceives his frames at the same time as the painting, considering the work as a whole. The frame for Careless Whispers in addition to carrying the song lyric has an Art Nouveau inspired ouroboros reinforcing the cyclical conversation between life and death.
