About the Artist 

While the paintings of J. Roger Charoux can be read as impressionistic glimpses into intimate scenes where one is able to observe without being noticed, the artist is also quite interested in the materialistic art of painting itself and his main inspirations are nature, line, and color. For Charoux, color and composition take precedence over the form in order to further emphasize the importance of the subject matter. Beginning with a ‘patch’ or idea with a general idea of subject, he slowly develops the composition by decomposing the drawing and dissolving the patches of color which compose the subject, blurring the line between form and ground in a process that allows him to bring out the raw essence and identity of his work. Through this process, Charoux’s paintings are able to become dreamlike evocations that reveal themselves solely by the reality of that dream.

Charoux's work has garnered much renown throughout his career. In 1951, he was awarded 'le prix du peintre,' and has exhibited in mist of the galleries and art venues in his home of Mauritius. Charoux's work has been acquired by many prominent personages, including former President of the Republic of France Mr. and Mrs. Francois Mitterrand, Indian Prime Minister His Excellency Shree Manmohan Singh, President of Mozambique His Excellency Joaquim Alberto Chissano, the President of the United Nations Mr. Koffi Annan, and the President of the Republic of Congo Brazzaville, amongst others.
