Roger Brown is recognized nationally and internationally for his distinctive artistic vision. Ever alert to the diverse dimensions of 20th-century life, he responded adroitly in works addressing a spectrum of subjects and issues, including: natural, architectural, and urban landscapes; the dichotomy of nature and culture; disasters of all types; current and political events; social, religious, and popular culture; autobiographical, personal, and sexual issues; the art world in many guises; cosmology; mortality; history; mythology; transformation; transportation; and the weather. In 2012 Evan Hughes, Director, Hughes Gallery, Sydney, described Brown as "…an artist I find to be intriguing, crisp and more eloquent for our own time than many living, working painters."
