ARTIST

Roy De Forest

1930—2007

Born in North Platte, Nebraska                                   

Roy De Forest, one of the preeminent artists of the Bay Area, constructs exciting images from his private mythology about journeys taken through fanciful landscapes that are inhabited by questing travelers and canine creatures.

De Forest invites the viewer to create a personal narrative from his aggregations of dogs, farm animals, and an assorted cast of characters set amidst a cacophony of brightly colored and patterned forms.
