THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
“Bridge with Boats” is an original cityscape rural painting by artist A. Roy, using oil on linen. This representation of a small bridge, a passageway, and the resting boats across a stretch of water is so simple, yet profoundly meaningful. The river stands still and there is no human presence in sight, leaving the viewer feeling as if this were a rare moment of precious alone time. The blue reflection on the water’s surface brings us calmness and depth. This piece begs to be placed on the wall and looked at whenever we are overcome with bouts of anxiety or sadness.
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.
