THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
In Ancient Greek mythology, Irises served as a symbol of a connection between the carnal and the divine; a meeting point for heaven and earth to mingle as one. With the Irises-2 Painting, the prominent iris featured sits atop earthy green grass that represents the physical realm, while its pale yellow petals rest against a lavender background, suggesting the merging of Heaven and Earth. Yellow irises typically represent passion and admiration, showing a dedication to life beyond our realm. Apply this painting to the walls of the room that you would like to inject a bit of hope and life into.

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.
