New Work by Hector Romero

A selection of remarkable recent works on paper by extraordinary Brooklyn painter/drawer Hector Romero, who may be with us in LA soon. Hector's been mining this rich vein of abstraction melding into cartoonish figurative graphics and back again since we were in grad school at UCLA, and the whole Providence-centered flurry of similar work came and went without anyone picking up on this masterful strain. Now is the time! (PS - I uploaded these images larger than usual because of the amount of detail in them -- click on each one to get a larger view)

To the Limit, Silly Phase, Now Who's Crazy, Nemo, Miracles, Las Palmas, Favorite Part, Fat Lip, Early Raveen, Cult Favorites, 6 valves All works pencil or mixed media on paper, 2010

Doug, thank you for this superb review of Hector's work. Hector was a painting student the year I was teaching painting / drawing at the University of Texas. We became friends and I always knew he was gifted at the highest level. I have not seen much of his work since Texas, and of course these images are stunning. They have excited me and have made me very happy for him. His work should be sought by our more important museums. - John Bender
