Roger Boyce, ‘Escape Hatch’, 2018. Oil and acrylic on board, 120 x 150cm. Courtesy: the artist and {Suite}.
  ‘Room’ is Roger Boyce’s seventh solo show at {Suite}. In it, he riffs on the clichéd trope of the tortured artist, making fun of the painter chained to their passion – searching for an escape hatch. Boyce’s paintings are ironic, self-aware, and critical. “Art about art – particularly paintings of the artist’s studio are the arena rock of painting. To my mind there’s a certain comic bathos in these paintings” Boyce says.
