There are over twenty major artworks which is a culmination of a year at her easel.
Land mass, with its textures and geo shapes is a major focus in her works which Romaine Kaufman paints in the abstract expressionist style, an Avant-garde movement, emphatically American in spirit, monumental in scale, romantic in mood, and expressive of a rugged individual freedom. The thing that really makes Romaine Kaufman truly unique is her tendency to combine Australian Indigenous Aboriginality in her works, steeped in a vibrancy of color.
Whilst Romaine Kaufman was educated in the US and Australia, she was raised in the latter and clearly has allowed the Australian terrain and that Country's Indigenous peoples' spirituality and culture to influence her compositions. Australia's sweeping landscapes and the symbols of the Australian Aborigine are certainly a pervading influence. Romaine Kaufman's majestic "Walkabout" series of six major works are a case in point.
"Every painting I have created is an expression of a style of a language in which the forms are found and the qualities are set forth." says Romaine Kaufman. " A concentric circle usually indicates a waterhole or a rock but it can also represent a tree, or a campfire. Straight lines indicate journeying and show the pathways travelled by the Ancestral beings in the Dreamtime (Australian Aboriginal Spirituality)
As a point of marked difference, Romaine Kaufman also has been strongly influenced by her present locale, painting the Intercoastal waterways of Miami and its surroundings, capturing its recreational sailing boats." I have always been enamored by the picturesque " says Romaine Kaufman, " The light that dances on the sails of yachts and the water in this part of the world is of particular beauty to me."
Romaine Kaufman's new exhibition will be opened by Ms Betty Greenberg, an art collector and previous Director of three New York Galleries.
