About Rakhee Roy

\"Through nature the divine speaks to us, if only we care to listen\"....I have been practicing art for last Eighteen years...my artistic philosophy has been centred around environment . After watching AL gore\'s \"inconvenient truth\", the issue of global warming has moved me, I felt a strong need to make people aware through my paintings. Our greed is ruining the naturalness of our world and has brought it to a brink of annihilation, the greenness is gradually withering away. The civilization is helpless to the danger it is heading towards...Rakhee Roy.. Speaking about this infusive fantasy that punctuates Rakhee’s work, noted art-critic Mrinal Ghosh writes – “This fantasy, which is akin to the concept of chamtkara of Indian aesthetics, is sonorous, rhythmic evoking a kind of child like innocence and purity. In her fantasy reality merges with dream. Human being is unified with various form of nature. This unification gives rise to a kind of jubilation indicating some sort of resurrection from temporal turmoil. The apparent reality is negated through introduction of super-reality. She elevates her fantasy oriented decorative figurations towards a surrealist sonority tinged with love for nature and life”. Growing up between Kolkata and Vishakhapatnam, Rakhee Roy makes intricate paintings that seem to create a rythmatic infusion of nature as the parenting pot of its living elements. Using a soothing syncopation of figurative styles, charming colours and a well rounded but dense assembly of life expressed as the foliage of nature, the artist finds her unique voice of protesting against devastation via the legato of suave enchantment as opposed to angst. Humans in her work don the centre stage but in topiarian forms embodying the conglomerate beauty of their own environment. Rakhee\'s work have been exhibited in many notable art cites. She Presently lives and works in Kolkata. \"Through nature the divine speaks to us, if only we care to listen\"....I have been practicing art for last Eighteen years...my artistic philosophy has been centred around environment .
