Sekhar ROY ✿

'Come se...
il respiro nebuloso
portasse il vento
a turbare i sensi
e le tue mani
adulanti foglie
in sussulto
entrassero in me...
a gridarlo
nello stomaco...'

~ Catherine La Rose ~

Roy's participation at camps and workshops include North American Bengali Conference 2006, a workshop at Houston, Texas, Centenary of Cellular Jail at Port Blair in '06, Art mosaic at Singapore in '05 besides many more. - A sense of solitude pervades Sekhar’s works and his subjects exude loneliness, each in their own private world of love and misery. In the artist’s words “in a world teeming with millions, every man seemed like an island living his own private, isolated life.” Starting out in black and white, he gradually entered into a world of colour. His paintings usually monochromatic, are strikingly beautiful. -
