Biography from The Owings Gallery:

The sinuous abstracted line of Gilberto Romero's fabricated bronzes is rooted in the deep traditional culture of Northern New Mexico.  Romero believes his deep respect for his Hispanic family values and the outdoor environment is best expressed, not in the traditional imagery of the New Mexican Santero, but in the contemporary imagery of bronze, steel and stone.  The shape, line, color and event he negative space in and around each sculpture express Romero's feelings for family and nature.


Being a fourth generation New Mexican, Romero has a long history to draw upon and that is reflected in the myriad of works Romero has created.  Romero realized at an early age that art was his calling and began to work towards establishing his vision.  Like a great many bronze artists before him, Romero started as an assistant to already established artists.  A great inspiration early on was the Italian trained Colorado artist, Gino Miles.  Also influential has been the Native American artist, Estella Loretto.

As Romero has refined his work, the tutelage of the sculptor Peter Woytuk has been most important. All three artists have passed on their knowledge of the many aspects of bronze work.  With that knowledge, Romero creates work strongly founded in the actual casting, fabricating and patina application of bronze.  Of the many variations of bronze work, Romero prefers fabrication which gives him a cleaner, sharper line than most cast bronze.

Fabrication is an extremely difficult process to do well.  It requires precision welding to achieve a clean, fluid and continuous line.  This is a technique for master welders.

Also, Romero is a hands-on sculptor.  All of his work is done personally in his studio.  Even his cast work, though cast in a foundry, is welded, chased and patinaed by Romero.

In addition to bronze, Romero incorporates steel, natural stone, found driftwood and cast bronze birds into his work.
