It's not about destruction, it's about the artist's hopeful belief that humanity has a tenacious capacity to survive, adapt, evolve, resurrect, and/or rebuild.

That is absoulutely fantastic, it captures ammence detail and destruction. I think the artist is trying to represent the years coming. It's actually, for me extremely satirical. Awesome.

Making us remember we will never be stronger or smarter than nature and its epic power

I think the first painting is great, it reminds me of some condos I saw in Hawaii that were stuck in the beautiful green lush hills, it was so out of place and wrong but they have been there for years destroying that beautiful lush hillside. Its a Pitiful site. love the destruction you have captured here to rightfully remove such ugliness in the green.

The human race as 'insignificant' gives forth possibility for the furute of life. Your concept speaks volumes. and your skill is magnificent.

Very unusual subject matter and a brave forray into commercial art if indeed these pieces are intended to be commercial. I cannot imagine having these hung in a bright and vibrant building but suspect there would be a small minority willing to pay good money for the impact value of the pieces. Good luck Mr. Roy.

Destruction is a form of creation. The end of one thing is only th beginning of something new. Imay be biased since my work is apocolyptic butI like it!
