For the Italian-Irish artist Romana Londi color is the missing link to a forgotten language.
Her practice deals with many strains of thought and materiality and levels the difference between life and nonlife, human and nonhuman, synchronicity and dislocation.
Londi has developed a unique light-sensitive paint medium which allows her works to mime and react to their immediate surrounding through a chameleonic shifting in colour and through the casting of shadows.
Vulnerable to their geographical location, season, and time of day, the paintings become sentient beings rather than representational objects.
