Romaine has taken on Abstract Expressionism to bring an understanding of a visual communication with an internal human element of the emotional energy of nature. These works are in touch with the world globally but incorporate an influence of the spiritual symbolism and culture of Australia's Indigenous peoples.The renowned art of the Australian Aborigines inspired and influenced her paintings to where she is now.
The "Walkabout" series of 10 paintings are exhibited in this Show.
