THE WORKS OF JEAN CLAUDE ROY By : Charlotte Frost

The past couple of years left many of us longing for connection . Amidst lockdowns and restrictions , we turned to the outside as a source of joy . For artist Jean Claude Roy , it meant looking at his surroundings in his native France as a source of inspiration . His latest collection of artwork portrays the world through his eyes : colorful French provincial landscapes brimming with life and personality , small details brought into focus when they otherwise may have been missed . Coupled with his scenic representations of the American South and its natural treasures , and fond memories of his contemporary home in Newfoundland , Jean Claude ’ s depiction of that which lives outside our doors is a reminder to celebrate all that ’ s beautiful in the world , despite the chaos going on around us .
