Inspired by primitive geometric forms, the work of Bruno Romeda connects shapes as simple as circles.
Inspired by primitive geometric forms, the work of Bruno Romeda (1933–2017) connects shapes as simple as circles, squares and triangles with the raw tension of the natural world. By casting twigs and other natural elements in bronze, Romeda creates striking silhouettes that play with shadows and our perception of space.
The Italian born Romeda lived much of his life around Europe, before settling permanently in France. His earliest shows in the Sixties took place in Brussels and London, where his furniture and sculpture rose to prominence for its fossilised appearance and harmony of proportion. His work is represented in collections across the world, including the Metropolitan Museum in New York and the Kasama Nichido Museum of Japan.
