Artist Roy Secord, a “21-Century modernist”, is primarily a public artist. He is also an educator, master artist/facilitator for community art programs culminating in public art, and a social reformer through the transformative vehicle of the arts. The artist’s vocabulary draws from the universal languages of line, shape, and geometry. He is a dynamic colorist who creates art of dimension, depth, and rhythm through visual dances of color. His work (paintings, mosaics, sculpture, graphic design) is contemporary, structured, and distilled to abstraction. He often draws from sources of nature, emotion, and beauty, with works being portrayed as poetic in expression. As well, he draws from continuums: threads of universal commonality and statement winding through ancestral cultures to near-future, technological societies.
