‘Rise and Fall’ Sculptures darken or lighten in response to the character and intensity of light, most notably ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which is present in sunlight: the primary condition for the possibility of life on earth.
These sculptures are alive, reactionary, sensual, human, emotional, utterly present and in perpetual dialogue and evolution according to the time of day, season, geography and ultimately the position within the installation space.

Romana Londi (Italian/Irish) lives and works in London, studied Political Science in Italy, Fine Art at Central Saint Martins and then progressed to Fine Art and Theory of Art at University of East London. Londi’s practice explores the phenomenology of the material that foregrounds the experience of viewing acknowledging each spectator’s individual relation to time, space and of the visual perception of the work. Overriding themes of the physical and the virtual, cause and effect, chance and fore mostly, memory binds each of her painting series into a catalogue of contradictory, and ultimately human perceptions.
