is a sculptor based in Gloucestershire. He works principally with Portland Stone, creating small abstract sculptures whose forms are inspired by the modernist architecture of the international style architects, Erich Mendelsohn, Serge Chermayeff, Berthold Lubetkin, and Antonio Sant’Elia, and by the Suprematist aesthetic that foreshadowed their work. He is currently working on his ‘Architectonic’ series of sculptures which is deliberately retrospective in nature, prophesying, perhaps, a return to a modernist aesthetic as the pendulum of contemporary art swings back once again towards its sources.
Roy was initially trained at the Hoathly Hill School of Sculpture in Sussex, and taught woodcarving and stone-carving at a Rudolf Steiner school in Sussex for more than 25 years. He gained an M.A. in Contemporary Art and Theory at Winchester School of Art in 1996, since which time he has been a freelance art critic writing for many national and international art magazines and journals. He has exhibited his work in the Towner Gallery, Eastbourne, Charlie Smith Gallery, Charlie Dutton Gallery and Lesley Craze Gallery, all in London, the Grey Area Gallery in Brighton, and at Gallery Nine in Bath.
