The work of Romulo Royo, Flowers and thorns, belonging to his homonymous series, in which he investigates the roots of the human being and his desire. His figures resemble mirages among the vapours, the result of his great technical skill, achieved on a rich texture thanks to the mixture of acrylic and oil that he uses in his creative process.

Key elements that stand out in this series and that become part of the artist's personal sign could be the medallions and coins, as well as the feathers that dress the hair of the women who are the protagonists of his paintings. The tattoo, that millenary art so appreciated in Asian cultures, drawn on the skin of our protagonist, which seems soft and translucent, shows us the dualities with which Romulo Royo works in his works. Delicacy and hardness are also represented in the barbs and feathers, which in this case appear one on each side of the figure.

His work evokes mystery and tension for an event that has happened or is about to happen. They, the protagonists of the scene, raise a doubt... sweet or perverse? It is one of the unknowns left to the viewer's interpretation with those horns that crown the woman rising above that ethereal background that stands out in the artist's production.

“Whether it’s in reference to the refugee situation"—he didn’t specify which one, but there are plenty—“or the way the media is processing Black Lives Matter, abstraction has been comfortable—for us. But it doesn’t give shape to the discomforts and questions that I think a lot of us are grappling with.”
