Roger Moloney’s paintings offer a view of a surreal world which is strangely familiar. Sinking boats and burning structures … strange formations that linger, ominously, hinting at impending crisis or doom. These are elements of theatre which Moloney uses to create a taxleaux of visual drama.
Continuing a long held interested in anxiety and oppression, Moloney has invented spaces which oscillate between dislocation and association, and evoke a sense of anticipation. The paintings are colourful yet foreboding.
Roger Moloney is a Melbourne based artist who has followed a consistent visual language for the past twenty years. Several years in the making, this exhibition will be Roger Moloney’s first solo show since 1997.
