His images incorporate visions of imaginary places, monuments, aliens, trains, animals or warriors and are as once pointed out, entirely from his own unadulterated imagination. Roy’s work does not fall outside the cultural mainstream as he utilised a diverse repertoire of popular media icons from present day to those of ancient and classical antiquity in entertaining and intriguing amalgamations.
Roy always maintained a healthy disregard for the art of others, not in any disrespectful way, but in the sense that it wasn’t relevant to his own vision. Ultimately he drew for himself, never speaking of his art as being good or bad or of favourite pieces, only of his need to continue making. Roy passed away in 1999.
Roy’s work has been exhibited at various venues including the Museum of Everything Exhibition #4 at Selfridges, London, the Henry Boxer Gallery, London and the Garde Rail Gallery, Seattle, USA.
