Addressing themes surrounding dystopia and utopia, Parasite Eve plays into the apocalyptic narrative derived from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The series of paintings takes into consideration popular culture, historical and political aspects. With elements of Bradbury’s personal life coming through. Whilst expanding upon the exploration of psychological fears and anxieties encompassing ‘The End’ and the grinding halt that came to a pre-pandemic normalised lifestyle.
It is a visual comment on issues both past and present. Parasite Eve takes an expressive stab at the pandemic itself and the effects that it has had, not only on Nell Bradbury as the artist, but those around her and within the community from the year 2020 through to the present day.
