About

Runo Lagomarsino utilizes poetic imagery and irony in his practice to reflect on the deeply rooted Eurocentrism that still exists today.

His work explicitly confronts the history of imperialism beginning with Columbus, documenting its origins in European lust for gold and showing the resulting exploitation. Lagomarsino’s powerful work illustrates the raw violence that remains beneath the surface of the ocean.
