Roc-Roussey: Realm of Imagination features the artist’s latest creations and inviting us on a journey through his creative evolution. Roc-Roussey’s fervent imagination bridges Eastern and Western mythologies, re-invigorating fantasy worlds that transcend time and space. His works spin dreamlike narratives of legendary wars, epic romances and heroic odysseys, drawing us into a universe of maharajahs, nababs, samurais and odalisques. Whether depicting an intrepid horserider throwing herself into battle, a young devadasi dancer in a rapturous act of worship, or a geisha retaining a fascinating composure in the midst of public display, fixed cultural identities are reimagined as fluid forms in the artist’s timeless painterly vision. In fact, Roc-Roussey goes so far as to unearth an ancestry between them, one not historical or geographical in nature, but an imaginative ancestry – an ancestry of humanity.
