THE ART OF ROYCE DEANS
Life provides the building blocks: proportion, time, space, and texture. All serve as a foundation on which I build my work.
In recent years I have spent a lot of time making abstract paintings. As a result, my landscapes and figurative work are in new ways more expressive, loose, and in tune with the essence of the subject.
It pleases me when I see the forms of the figure and the outdoor scenes I am so familiar with make appearances in the abstract work. They are woven in and have become part of the fabric of those abstract compositions.
