Notes


Ernesto Romano is an Italian artist living and working in London. Romano‘s works are digital or photographic prints, based on his own X-Rays. He has exhibited nationally and internationally.

Heavy is the Head That Wears The Crown borrows its title from Shakespeare, a metaphor often used to talk about the burden and difficulties of being a leader. The composition of 48 imaginary X-Rayed Coronation crowns (St. Edwards Crown) arranged in a rainbow gradient, is an homage to the legacy of HM Elizabeth II as well as her cultural influence during 70 years of reign, and a celebration of continuity with Charles III.

As with all of Romano’s work, the use of colours and symbols in this piece are aimed to approach the matter (in this case leadership) with values that above all promote diversity and inclusion.
