Johnny Romeo "The Sunny Side of the Moon" @ HARVEY GALLERIES MOSMAN, 4 - 15 December 2020
“It goes without saying that the Corona pandemic has had an immense impact on all our lives. The lockdowns, coupled with the uncertainty of when life will return to ‘normal’, has created a general sense of isolation, anxiety, and hopelessness amongst people. Reflecting on my own experiences during pandemic life, I was motivated to create a body of work that tapped into our collective sense of hope and acted as a reminder to embrace life even in its dark moments. The things that I have always admired about Pop culture – its wide-eyed sense of escapism, its larger-than-life nature, and its ability to dream big – took on a much more profound meaning in light of the Corona crisis. In my latest series, THE SUNNY SIDE OF THE MOON, I really wanted to push the slick, Pop elements of my artmaking practice to the fore, and use Pop Art and humour as a way to make sense of a world where the Absurd has become the norm. Much like life in 2020, there is a healthy dose of the Surreal that courses through each painting in the series. More importantly, however, there is an undeniable sense of resilience and positivity that underpins each work, as I depict Pop culture striving to find meaning and purpose in the unfamiliar, scrambling through the dark in search of the sunny side of the moon.”
