About

Danny Romeril’s works focus on music and the visual worlds associated with it: from still lifes of instruments to musicians, band portraits and album covers. Characteristic of his paintings and works on paper are the almost physical-looking figures and musical instruments, painted in pasty colours, with an almost three-dimensional impression, as well as numerous references to art history.

On closer examination, Hutchings‘ and Romeril‘s works seem to echo more than 100 years of expressive painting traditions of the Fauvists, such as Derain, Matisse and Vlaminck, over Braque, Picasso, but also Max Beckmann and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. Besides the conscious as well as unconscious references to a Modernism – that was criticized as „wild“ or „neo-primitivist“ a century ago and ultimately celebrated after all
– Hutchings‘ and Romeril‘s "Bad Paintings", with their loose style of painting and their sometimes computer- screen-like flatness, prove to be extremely contemporary. In addition to their art historical references, a fresh, almost anarchic humour in dealing with their famous role models and ancestors who have long been part of art history is unmistakable in these paintings.

Danny Romeril (b. 1996) graduated from Central Saint Martins, London in 2019 whereupon he participated in the ‚La Brea Studio Residency‘ in Los Angeles, which resulted in a show at The Cabin LA. One Hit Won- der at New Arts Project, London, was his first solo show. Followed by Music Shop Music at Galerie Thomas Fuchs, Stuttgart. His pieces have been selected for group shows such as Antisocial Isolation at the Saatchi Gallery and ‘FBA futures’ at Mall Galleries.
