SUZANNE TARASIEVE | LE MARAIS
7, rue pastourelle – 75003 Paris
Primitive masks, lush exotic plants, mountainous crepuscular landscapes, intriguing postures, face with a missing eye, collapsed dolmen: everything in Romain Berniniʼs paintings seems to come from another place.
New Ecstatic Island, Romain Berniniʼs new show at the gallery Susanne Tarasieve partakes of the same intention. One brought up by a painter who, like a static traveller, in the solitude of his studio fantasises about exoticism and questions the concept of otherness in a world where cultural diversity is the product of multiple interactions.
To further his reflection on the subject, Romain Bernini is revisiting in several paintings, the figure of the exotic bird by excellence: the parrot.
