Biography

Pedro G. Romero (Aracena, Huelva, 1964) graduated in Fine Arts in Seville, the city where he lives and works.

He is a highly versatile artist who has worked intensively in many disciplines: as sculptor, painter, performer, dramatist, scriptwriter, etc. besides being a critic of both art and literature, publisher, essayist and expert in flamenco. The central theme of his work is a reflection on, and investigation into, the concept of the image as a point of resistance to time, whether it be historical, biological, psychological time or as reflected in language. His works betray a constant preoccupation with the disappearance of authorship. One might even say that his images and writings seem to be systems of signs that are not human.

In 1986 he undertook his first one-man-show and in 1988 he exhibited Magatzem d´idees in the Sala Moncada of the Fundació La Caixa, in Barcelona. Between 1988 and 1992 he showed his work in the Fúcares Gallery in Madrid, with exhibitions like R.A.R.O. and Un mundo raro. He also planned La sección áurea, title of his 1989 exhibition in the Fundación Luis Cernuda in Seville. From 1987 onwards he began to show his series on the atomic bomb. These included El tiempo de la bomba (The Time of the Bomb) at the Sala Unicaja, Malaga, 1993 or El saco de la risa (A Bundle of Laughs) at the Tomas March Gallery, Valencia, 1995 or El fandango de la bomba (The Bomb Fandango) at the Diputación de Huelva, 1996. He also had individual exhibitions in the cities of Barcelona, New York or Milan, and in countries such as Brazil or Germany. Since 2000 he has been working on the projects of Archivo F.X. and Máquina P.H. which take as their working material iconoclasm andflamenco, respectively.

His work is to be found in collections such as that of MACBA, of the Fundació La Caixa, the Reina Sofía National Art Museum, the Alava Museum of Fine Arts, the Diputación de Granada and the Andalusia Centre for Contemporary Art.
