Romas Astrauskas: Chances are the Comets in our Future   
Chances Are The Comets In Our Future at NOFO
April 25 - Jun 2, 2013

Chances are doors that just open up
I don't just carry for nothing
Ten tons of rain in a plastic cup
Tears unknown that fill oceans
Chances are the comets in our future
While others go on living in the past
The future seems farther away than Jupiter
Does appear through the telescopic glass
You can move so many, many times
Our home is everywhere we've been
Some people like to show humility
Others live in dramatic scenes on ships
Instead of feeling their own dealing and partake
They grow invisible as their soul starts to slip
Away from the center of illumination
That old steel-toothed border upstairs
-(Hagerty/Herrrema)


Romas Astrauskas, an MFA graduate of New York’s Parsons School of Design, is a Toronto based artist and writer. His output is defined principally by his varied and eclectic approach to creating work, an approach characterized by a continuous exploration into the possibilities of materials and mediums. Alchemy, ritualism, mysticism and entropy all collide as subject matter in his ongoing project which researches and investigates, through object making, the poetic repercussions of a finite, time-based existence.

Astrauskas has exhibited extensively throughout Toronto and beyond it’s borders, including the Power Plant (Toronto), the Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art (Winnipeg), Art and Culture Centre of Hollywood (Fort Lauderdale) as well as the Scope Art Fair in both Miami and New York.
