His work is defined through the language of abstraction and addresses issues such as space, time and the human condition.
“Rovner understands his artistic practice as an ‘open opera’ composed of endless figures, such as texts written in multiple materials, drawings, videos, sculptures, photographs and paintings, books. Books with light. Light to understand history and humanity ; light to glimpse the past and the present of the inevitable constant change of political and human events “, explains Elena Ochoa Foster, founder and CEO of Yvorypress.
