Roger Moloney’s paintings offer a view of a surreal world infused with anxiety and disaster. Sinking boats and burning structures…strange formations that linger ominously, hinting at impending crisis or doom. Devoid of inhabitants, we are unsure if disaster has taken its toll. These theatrical elements are employed by Moloney to offer a sense of suspense and chaos.
This exhibition continues Moloney’s long held interest in anxiety, oppression and dislocation. Small in scale, 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.
