Meet Val Roy - Canadian based artist specializing in abstract, landscape, music and musician inspired paintings.
I paint to capture the energy of things that inspire me, my passions, and vitality for life, and to share this with others.
For me, process is as important as the final piece. Energetic paint handling helps to convey and maintain my passion for the subject and keep my work fresh and dynamic.
I am currently painting in encaustics. Basically, this involves melted wax, resin and pigment..and fire! Cool!I
I strive for depth both in my surface textures and the meaning behind my work.
I also seek a certain degree of obscurity or ambiguity in my work. This allows the viewer to interact with the painting, stimulates their imagination, and leaves room for them to bring their own experiences and feelings to the painting. Maybe even make the viewer contemplate: what energizes and captivates me? Makes my senses tingle? Makes me feel alive?
