Renato Grome

  

Born 1954, Rome. Focusing on the many facets of personal identity, Grome frequently works from the perspective of an outsider looking in. "I look at the world surrounding me with an out-of-body-vision, as though my eyes are outside their sockets, outside of my head, with a 360º vision.” Known for his flower photographs produced through the technique of analogue reversal, to create colour-saturated images which are iconic, seductive, yet darkly disquieting, Grome's experimental landscapes from China, Italy, France and the USA involve the construction of custom-made rigs, consisting of a lens he has invented specifically for this series. The man-made world is fractured into prisms or distorted by the curves of a crystal globe, with subtle nods to Cubism, Surrealism, Futurism and humour.
