THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The artist A. Roy places a female at the center of this wonderful piece of art named “Still life with seated woman”. The painter uses bold colors, deep red and brown in contrast with white and light yellow and orange, to call attention to her figure, as well as her face and hands. She looks as if she wandered into her thoughts and is already far away from this world, as indicates the expression of distance and sadness on her face. The artist manages to create a simple space where ideas and imagination coincide, and unite all that in one true masterpiece.
GETTING TO KNOW A. ROY
A. Roy takes his inspiration from artists all across the board, bringing in little bits and pieces of what he loves about each one and incorporating them into each of his works. Born in Bengal, Krishnagar, Roy has moved a lot throughout his life and has taken his cues from the colors, the landscapes and the life that he has witnessed throughout his journeys. This becomes evident when you look at his natural scenes full of serene waters, sprawling mountaintops, pleasant forests and tranquil fields.
