Friday, March 3, 2017 to Monday, March 27, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday March 3, 5:30-8pm.
Laconia Gallery is pleased to present True Colors, new works by Dan Roy. Dan’s work concentrates on placing animals in surreal settings. The paintings encapsulate both the real and fantastic with his vivid use of color and expressive strokes. It’s the exaggerated skies and soft rolling hillsides that personify the otherwise simplified forms. His process of layering glazes creates depth of color and emotion within the landscape. Recently, Dan has experimented with adding meticulous repetitive marks in the background of his paintings that attribute a graphic, whimsical quality to his works. The Blue Sheep series is displayed in this show alongside new additional pieces inspired by his trip to Bhutan in 2014.
