While dipping into the pool of creativity, Royo has found inspiration in the sensuous essence of water for this exceptional new collection. By mirroring the draping of fabric on his seductive models with the water's soothing movement, he has created a body of work that is both hypnotic and transcendent. In viewing the paintings, we become immersed in a dream of Royo's making, allowing his fiction of light cascading on liquid surfaces and richly patterned fabrics to guide our way. We find ourselves diving deeply into his profoundly saturated colors and then emerging with a renewed appreciation for the master's touch.
The element of water has played a supporting role in Royo's past exhibitions; however with the unveiling of Agua, we find it an integral part of his compositions. By elevating the imagery of water and its corresponding associations with life, fertility and spirituality, his paintings gently speak to a deep part of our psyches. acting as an aqueous muse, water has become the source from which his lovely women have emerged. Much like in Botticelli's Birth of Venus, Royo's paintings celebrate the symbiosis beteen nature and one of its greatest creations.
Royo's long and distingquished career has been filled with many triumphant moments, of which Aqua is another brilliant example. We hope you will enjoy this inspiring new collections.
