Rovegno's work is a multidisciplinary index of clear and extremely sensitive photographic perception, originated in and influenced by his hometown (NYC) and its underground culture; A photographic dialect tracing its roots on a cultural background which is motivated by the expressive freedom of the artistic practice combining no academic or formal education in photography.
Using pictures and text in an organic visual and linguistic legacy and by creating illuminating symbols almost impossible to deconstruct, Rovegno's gesturing process is reflecting encounters with Neo-Expressionism and Action Painting. And we feel confident enough to say that he is creating - performing - transmitting an Action Photography sensitive and impactful enough so to name him a true visual poet of our times.
