Overview

It took JC Roy years of painstaking dedication and travel to paint a scene from every town on the island of Newfoundland. And after seeing that grand vision made available to all in Fluctuat Nec Mergitur: JC Roy’s Newfoundland, Roy headed north to finish the second half of his magnum opus. With Roy’s singular brushwork, palette, and vision displayed in gorgeously rendered full-colour reproductions, and text in English, French, Innuaimun, and Inuttitut, Terra Magna is a magnetic tribute to the cultures and landscapes of The Big Land. Elegantly designed and remarkably affordable, this vibrant art book completes an imaginative project like no other and stands as an entirely unique testament to one artist’s exhaustive and passionate commitment to a place.

Jean Claude Roy

Jean Claude Roy was born in Rochefort-sur-Mer, France, in 1948. Committed to becoming an artist since childhood, he first came to the province of Newfoundland and Labrador as a sailor at the age of 17. After many years living and painting in the province, he now divides his time between his two countries: Canada and France. Primarily a landscape painter, he is entirely self-taught. His works can be found in public and private collections in the United States, Canada, and Europe.
