The paintings of Jean Pierre Roy tend to leave one in a state of speechless awe as your brain struggles to process the disturbing fact that the artist has conjured his worlds and painted them solely from his imagination.

Echoing the style of the Hudson River School (Bierstadt, Church and Cole), Roy pushes landscape painting forward by giving us a haunting and sublime visual feast of cinema, science, the apocalypse and hope.
