Reinhard Roy is a prominent representative of Concrete Art.

His work is characterized by the dot - as a single form and as a grid of dots - and the circle and modifications of the circle up to the ellipse.

His works incorporate mathematical aspects, such as the calculation of distances and the division of surface and space, and physical aspects, such as optical phenomena, e.g. the effect of viewing angles and color contrasts on the eye.

Combined with a great desire to experiment and a broad knowledge of literature, history and music, he succeeds in giving his works something extremely poetic, sensual, almost transcendental.

On closer inspection, some of his pictures suddenly appear shimmering and three-dimensional, and his objects, some of which are massive and heavy, radiate something light, almost floating.
