New Bedford Nocturne Harbor

“I am fascinated with the transformation of the landscape at night. Lights take on an emotive beauty in the shifting darkness, and color, though muted, becomes even more precious among an endless assortment of grays and blues…The nocturne challenges us to enter a meditative observational state in which we are aware of subtle changes, both natural and man-made.” — Roy St. Christopher Rossow

Roy St. C. Rossow was born in Montego Bay, Jamaica in 1975. He emigrated to the United States for better medical care after contracting Polio. Raised in a small rural New England town, surrounded by corn fields and open pastures, Roy gained a love and appreciation for nature. He moved to Newport, RI to study painting and computer science at Salve Regina University, receiving a B.A. and B.S. After working for over 15 years as a digital artist, Roy took his M.F.A. at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in New Bedford, MA., where he now lives and works in the historic downtown as a full-time artist.
