Summer Romasco is an artist living and working in California. Romasco grew up in rural Ohio. She moved to New York to study art and English at the University of Rochester and Humanities and Social Thought at NYU. She finally moved to California where she makes artwork about the iconography of the West - Hollywood, counterculture, the desert, and road tripping.
Romasco works in acrylic and silkscreen to create explorations of signs and signifiers through patterns, repetition and revision. She explores how interpretation, translation, and slippages occur given changes in context by creating iterations, multiples, and editions. Each work explores philosophy that icons, symbols, and recurrent motifs create a framework through which we develop understanding and aspirations.
