Passion or the impossible choice by
Rembrandt oil on canvas
She says about her painting:
"The research field is the exploration of different paths, daring and frustrating the «choice » to achieve at the extreme where the antagonists meet and are confronted.
To abandon, and finally to discover the intrusive and joyful fullness.
To give up to distinguish the detail in order to discover unexpected totality.
Passion rises from this renunciation.
The blue and the red that have been opposed over centuries of painting and optics, twinkle and palpitate on the same level."
Romaine is born in Sion, Switzerland, lives in Lausanne.
She studied painting, sculpture, scenography and design at the Academia delle Belle Arti in Firenze and at the Academia delle Belle Arti of Brera, Milan (Italy) where she graduated in 1989.
Later she trained in scientific drawing and she collaborated with several archaeology institutes.
Since 1990, Romaine has created more than thirty scenographies and costumes for operas, classic and contemporary theatre in Switzerland, Germany and France.
At the same time, Romaine keeps developing her activity as a painter and she exposes individually and collectively in Switzerland and Italy.
