Roman’s works are often made up of juxtapositions of material; rusty iron A-frames come up against graphite-covered MDF and trompe l’oeil representations of woodgrain.
What appears like disparate matter is drawn together into visual poems; meditations clustered around particular concerns; Marxism, opium, De-Colonialism, thermodynamics, irony, sincerity, and Feminism. These poems do not explain the world but are maps in a journey of discovery; a journey to escape the impasse of an ‘eternal present’.
