In Laura Rathe Fine Art’s upcoming exhibition “Dream State”, contemporary artist, Roi James will debut his newest body of work, with an opening reception on Saturday, May 17th from 5-8pm.

 

Regarded as transcendent and conceptual, James’s works and techniques express a sense of fluency to viewers, as seen in his diverse range of meditative abstract paintings and architectural wall sculptures.  As he describes his process as a sort of ‘creative surrender’ to his thoughts and emotions, James states that with each piece, he ultimately strives to convey a feeling of freedom and to encourage contemplation.

 

The “Dream State” collection will be on view through June 21, 2014.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Having emerged from a classical background, Roi James began his career as an artist gaining inspiration from the great romantic landscape painters, such as J.M.W Turner, Claude Lorrain, Caspar David Friedrich, and Thomas Moran.  As James’s body of work evolved, he started to explore newer traditions in Abstract Expressionism, Op Art and Minimalism.  With his newer series, James experimented and discovered unorthodox methods of applying and moving oil paint to create archetypal forms that infused a sense of both familiarity and mysteriousness.
