Jorge Goncalves Romero

Venezuelan-Portuguese Painter living in Vienna, Austria

About me

Born in Caracas, Venezuela, 1958.
His artwork reflects his free view of painting. He attempts to present it simplistically, reflecting a relaxed nature and approach to life. Through strong colors and shapes, he seeks to convey the strength and power of men and women, who end up being one single entity. These shapes do not have the expressions that may be found in real faces or bodies. His aim is to reflect their personalities and to represent their inner expressions and their souls.
His work revolves around the study of light. He tries to explore different ways of contrasting tones, in order to enhance the energy of the sun and the beauty of shadows. Jorge has dedicated eight years of his life to research and development. He developed a mathematical method for the calculation of the LU decomposition, based on the Gauss algorithm. He painted it onto an array of parallel computers, in order to better exploit the latency of the calculation with a higher utilization of the hardware computational space. The development of this method was only possible because of his capacity for graphic abstraction, which is also used in his paintings, which are, in turn, a journey into his alpha world.

The region of Vienna, Austria

Art in general is represented in baroque opulence in Vienna, and there is a great variety of contemporary art to be experienced in the metropolis on the Danube. The creative Austrian and international art scene has long discovered Vienna as a fertile ground: numerous museums, special exhibitions, trade fairs and galleries guarantee exciting art enjoyment – non-conformism is a convention.
