This biography from the Archives of AskART:
“An Exploration of Form”

Excelling across multiple genres

Roi James's paintings of conceptual constructions, meditative abstracts , transcendent landscapes, and mystical figure portraits all acknowledge him to be a painter who is continually exploring and refining his technique. The diversity of his styles and the fluency in which he paints reveal that innate ability often described as a gift, but which is truly the result of a deep conviction and dedication towards his creative expression.

Having successfully developed mature bodies of work in the figurative, landscape, and abstract schools, in his latest work, James begins the integration of his compartmentalized styles to produce a singular and unified voice. In this new series entitled "Dialogues", a personal and mystical language emerges which speaks to the many layers and complexity which comprise our being.

Paintings no longer reveal just surface but expose the mystical currents which surround, penetrate, and flow through that surface. Each painting is broken into multiple panel arrangements which engage each other in dialogues creating a dance between; the traditional and the modern, formalism and contemporary, and representational and abstraction. In these works, he produces images in which the viewer can experience both a sense of the familiar and the unfamliar at the same time. There is a mysterious quality to the images. What are they? How were they made? The mind wants to identify them so that they can be placed into the world of the known. Yet the images defy a complete recognition leaving the viewer to rest in the uncertainty and mysteriousness of what it is that they are observing. It's that msytery that gives the work it's strength and power.
