Summer Romasco is an artist living and working in Oakland, CA. Romasco grew up in rural Ohio. She moved to New York to study art and English at the University of Rochester then 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 primarily in paint and screen print to create explorations of signs and signifiers. She explores how interpretation, translation, and slippages occur given changes in context by creating iterations, multiples, and editions. Each work affirms and tests philosophy that icons, symbols, and recurrent motifs create a framework for understanding our experiences and aspirations.
