About

JULIA ROMANO (1978 - )

Julia Romano was born in 1978, in Santa Fe, Argentina. She is a Professor and Licentiate in Plastic Arts from the Cordoba National University, Argentina.
Her production is mainly based on the construction of digital images from photographs. Beauty is one of the current themes in her work, where its esthetic aspect is highlighted; she goes into questioning the possibility of generating beauty nowadays.
On her last production, she is interested in contemporary theories that approach landscape as an object of representation in the history of art. Landscape owes its existence (at least its aesthetic autonomy) to its artistic representation.
She has participated in numerous contests and exhibitions, both individual and collective, at home and overseas.
She lives in Cordoba city, Argentina, where she is deeply committed with its cultural life. Since 2002, she works at the Provincial Museum of Fine Arts Emilio Caraffa.
