First Lady is a series dedicated to the Queen’s First class stamp with the iconic Queen’s profile reinterpreted with Romano’s classic X-rayed profile of Her Majesty.
First Lady is a series of artworks that use different materials and approaches. The first series is a diptych of giclee prints with overlay of silver and gold spray paint released in 2018.
In 2019 Ernesto Romano released 3 mini First Lady printed on brushed silver aluminium.
In 2020 he released a colourful C-type print with 16 different colours of stamps arranged in a 4×4 matrix. This artwork is mounted on aluminium with acrylic glass face, technique that has the advantage of enhancing the colours.
