Pandemic Parody' is a series of small-scale (25 x 20 cm) acrylic works on canvas depicting the consequences, behaviours and peculiarities of how lives have been turned Inside Out by the Covid-19 corona virus pandemic. The series re-imagines classic and interesting works of predominately nineteenth and twentieth century artists using the stimulus of the viral pandemic as the common thread to thematically integrate the disparate works. Originals showing the bustle of everyday life are stripped back to reflect the empty vistas because of lockdown. Others unveil the angst of physical separation, loneliness of quarantine, job insecurity, protests of resistance to lockdown and the ritual symbols and practices of maintaining a covid-safe environment. Through these parodies, Roger’s works provide pause for reflection and a small amount of luminescence to disperse the shadows of dark times.

(Please note, this work is currently on exhibition and will not be available for pick-up or delivery until the close of the exhibition. Please check the Belco Arts website for dates.)
