Circus Form is Roy Maloy's newest exhibition of non-blended impressionism and presents the human form when used in its most extreme and diverse contexts - in the performance of circus, vaudeville, burlesque and sideshow. Featuring the dexterity and strength of a number of the artists that Roy has performed with during his illustrious career, Circus Form consists of 14 pictures, oil on canvas.
When first asked to display a collection of portraits as an exhibition at the Block Arcade in Melbourne in January 2012, Roy assembled an impressive display of 14 pictures. The exhibition was unveiled for public display and was seen by a staggering 60,000 people within the month. The success of the exhibition was credited to the unique style in which Roy paints, and has captured the imagination of a wide audience. Without blending one colour into another through a hue of shades, Roy's technique of not blending each colour segment whilst still creating the illusion of shade and depth cuts new ground in the world of art. As a form of impressionism, creating a picture that is discernibly a representation of a known subject, the style now credited to Roy Maloy as its pioneer is known as 'non-blended impressionism.
