00:48.91

charukaarora

Um, so you step into the studio every day. Wow.

00:49.13

Roxy

Painting. So yeah, pretty much especially now I step into the studio about 6 or seven days a week because I’m working on a it’s quite crazy. But I’m working on ah a show for August and I so I have. About 9 other pieces to make so I’m just working hard right now.

01:13.18

charukaarora

Wow I am so grateful for you taking that time out, we know I know we had a few technical issues as well. But um, tell me tell me something about yourself. How did you get into the arts and like you know where you are I know you didn’t come from not school.

01:17.57

Roxy

Of course, no worries.

01:29.41

Roxy

Yeah, yeah, so I did briefly go to art school here in just for a little bit I got bored really really quickly. Um, here in.

01:30.81

charukaarora

Um, take us through a little bit of your journey.

01:39.95

charukaarora

Um, you did.

01:49.15

Roxy

Quebec ah, which is a province in Canada we we have what is called a sea jep and it’s basically a bridge between high school and university and and I took a year about a year or so of ah art.

02:08.19

Roxy

Art school over there and I just it just didn’t stick the program was like very like large in terms of what you would do and touch so we would basically cover all grounds and I personally only wanted to paint. So that was too scattered for me to to actually ah take keep interest in in the program. So I left and then I studied for about six months I’m not a very good student. So I’m not I’m not a point of reference. Maybe.

02:42.92

charukaarora

Um, yeah.

02:46.57

Roxy

For aspiring artists. But anyways, so and then I did six months of fashion design and for a little bit and then same thing happened. Well it was different then because the.

02:53.84

charukaarora

Oh you did fashion design.

03:04.48

Roxy

The program I was like the school I was in was not necessarily the best and the program for fashion design was like Brand new. Basically so the teachers that were there didn’t even have like ah a degree to teach so it was it was like a little like it was okay. So.

03:17.77

charukaarora

Good news. All of this was in Canada while like while you were still here.

03:23.86

Roxy

I Felt like I was losing my time and yeah, yeah, so I felt like I was wasting ah my my time in a sense and then shortly after I got pregnant with Lily my daughter which is she’s 14 now. And and then 14 Yeah yeah I I look a bit younger than than I am so yeah, anyways, we look like people people think we’re.

03:43.80

charukaarora

She’s 14 my goodness are you serious? You definitely don’t look like a mom of 14 I’m I just couldn’t imagine that.

04:01.20

charukaarora

Mr.

04:02.43

Roxy

And anyways kind of on Cliche but people do think that we’re sisters. Yeah, like let’s if we go to the restaurant. They’ll ask us if we’re going to split the bill which is weird I’m like that’s my child. Ah yeah, so anyway so when I had her I was in my thirty s to leave and then I.

04:12.52

charukaarora

Ah, my goodness.

04:22.35

Roxy

Did not it necessarily had a lot of time on my hands as you may know like as some of you may know when you’re a new mother like time is very very precious and there’s not a lot of it but I made it a point to start. Painting every time like I had a minute to myself. So basically I would hold her with 1 hand and breast feed her and then I would like paint with the other and then that would be like my night basically ah so and then from there I just like continued. Trying to put as much work in and then I started working again. It was 2008 so fourteen years ago so that’s really what? Ah what.

05:00.82

charukaarora

Um, what year was this 2008

05:12.65

Roxy

Started it all. Basically I was just like I wasn’t doing much with my life at the time and I was still ah waitressing in bars and restaurants and I was just like okay I need to do something with myself or my daughter and myself as well. So I just started that as like a side.

05:31.67

Roxy

Pursue a side project and then I just never ah I just never stopped I just never quit and like I just put more and more time into it and.

05:37.62

charukaarora

Stopped.

05:45.53

Roxy

Just developed basically but and I’ve only basically been doing that full time for the past five five six years now five years six years yeah yeah thank you.

05:56.51

charukaarora

Goodness, but your work is incredible and when I when I figured that you didn’t come from an art school and I felt like um now I Also it makes sense that you did fashions because I also did fashion and didn’t um you know. I Just did it? ah ah quite a quite a bit longer than I I thought I could and I just realized that it wasn’t like as created like with my own hands as I wanted it to be and I felt like oh my God Yeah I wouldn’t like I’ve wasted another few years of my life and I don’t know if I’ll ever use this.

06:17.26

Roxy

Yeah, yeah.

06:24.42

Roxy

Yeah, yeah.

06:31.76

Roxy

Yeah.

06:33.14

charukaarora

But um, fashion came into my work textiles and everything that I had interest in eventually came back into my work and I see the same thing with you now because your work is so much It’s of course the phase the Todian but it has so much.

06:38.28

Roxy

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

06:51.70

charukaarora

So much detailing on the um silhouettes and the way you know? um yes, the way the fabric falls the light and you know the curves of the fabric. It’s like it’s like a designer’s eyes.

06:53.23

Roxy

The fabric. Yeah.

07:02.43

Roxy

Yeah, well, it’s okay so it’s not a door I’ve closed actually but I told myself that instead of doing like fashion design and then start from the bottom as a fashion designer basically and having to. Work and so for someone and do all the hard work I told myself once I’m established enough and well known enough I’ll just hire people to do all that and all I’ll have to do is basically just draw the designs and I won’t have I I could I could actually skip all that hard work. So. Maybe one day you’ll you’ll see me.

07:39.22

charukaarora

See we’ll also see where your clothes apart from only seeing them. Will you tell me something does like has fashion been a source of inspiration for your work.

07:44.63

Roxy

Yeah, yeah.

07:54.85

Roxy

So Absolutely fashion is like it’s such a rich way to express your individuality and who you are and of course it’s part of the work. Ah. It’s a big part of the work. Actually I think styling and styling The models is something I do basically and I photograph them as Well. Ah, yeah, yeah, Okay, so that works that starts with.

08:19.77

charukaarora

So you basically Okay, yeah, let’s talk about your process. How how does that work.

08:30.27

Roxy

Sometimes I have a model in mind sometimes I have like an old master’s works in mind that I want to recreate um and then what I’ll do I’ll just contact them some of them I know. Already for for like a long time but some the new ones sometimes I’ll contact them and I’ll ask them if they would like to pose for me So Then basically they come over to the studio I dress them with. With a bag of clothes that I have here or my clothes or if they have something cool that they brought I’ll use their own personal style also and then I’ll like place their hair quite quickly. Ah, do maybe a little bit of makeup like and then I’ll take the photos. And then from that photo I’ll I’ll do a little bit of ipad work basically on it and then from there I use the reference as as the the reference for the final painting.

09:33.91

charukaarora

How did you’ve come to can you talk a little bit about what your work is about and how let’s also talk about how did you find because you have a very cohesive ah like when I see your work I know it’s your work like I can. No matter where I see it I know it’s it’s it’s it’s your work so you have that sense of cohesiveness but also that sense of style like I said like you know the way. Um your fabric falls in like the details in the way you color? Um, let’s talk about a.

09:49.70

Roxy

Thank you.

10:07.91

charukaarora

Someone who didn’t like you didn’t come from naz school per se one of the biggest trouble a lot of people um, have is like let me break this the technical part which is definitely the biggest part of the work technically figuring things out and making sure like you know.

10:19.54

Roxy

Yeah, yeah.

10:24.54

charukaarora

Then the part where your work becomes more recognizable and more you like finding that that voice or that visual style and like whatever that may look like you. How did you figure these 2

10:37.75

Roxy

And I think ah so basically finding the style like if you’re actively trying to find the style and this is what your goal is You won’t find your style.

10:54.00

charukaarora

Yeah.

10:54.90

Roxy

You really have to let go of that idea and you really just have to work on your skill sets. What is your strength.. What are you good at what do you like what you don’t like and then from there a style will be built From. From all the things that define you basically, but it’s not something that you go and you go on a quest and then you’re like oh let me go and find my style.. It’s It’s really just try as best as possible as to be to to be honest with yourself. About what you like what you dislike and also be careful of looking too much at other people’s works because it will corrupt ah your work in a sense not in a bad Way. You can do it like while you’re still like in learning phase. But I think that. If you really want to get serious about your art. You really got to be careful about really looking inwards to be able to look outwards without corrupting the work that you’re going to make Basically if that makes any sense.

11:59.66

charukaarora

How did that work for you. How what’s your story. What’s your work. Let’s talk a little bit about your work. You know the figure is the female figures. What are you trying to do with your work.

12:13.22

Roxy

So Basically um, it’s funny because I was just writing my text for my solo show and it just went super loopy because anyway it’s very complex thoughts and ideas that I have. Ah. About like the process of why am I doing this and what is what does it represent and what is it but to put it in a simple way. It’s basically ah those paintings Basically all all reflect something my thoughts a part of me. That basically I’m hiding behind So What I’m doing I’ll I’ll use a model that is not me but still what I’m looking for into that model is that piece of me. Basically so when I’m trying to ah. Talk about a subject or whatever I’m really trying to get that like little glimpse like that one photo that is like just says like everything that I I want to say and then from there basically the work.

13:25.13

charukaarora

I think.

13:25.16

Roxy

Is like born into the world. But ah yeah, and it doesn’t really have sometimes it’s really I don’t go in with a precise idea and like with a meaning in mind sometimes it’ll be organic I because I’m just. Ah. As I do it or but it’s really it has to speak to me first like I never think about what people will think of it I always and like am I excited about the work would my 8 year old self be excited about the work and if the answer is yes then. Like I just go ahead.

14:04.15

charukaarora

Tell me something your um when you’re even saying this like something that I read on your website which was like how times change but ah, people are still themselves. How did then like from. Yeah.

14:13.33

Roxy

Yeah people Yeah people do the same.

14:21.62

charukaarora

How like in this process and like you know were you like someone who would like I’m trying to interest like it’s not like 1 fine day we get up and let me like okay this is what I’m interested in or you know. Okay, this is what I believe in and this is what I’ll make my work about um how did you come up. How did you find and discover this idea that became such a big backbone for your own work.

14:47.24

Roxy

Ah, by that you are you referring to the the reference to the old masters. Okay, because that’s what I mean by the times that change but people stay the same. That’s what it refers to basically so but it was just.

14:52.10

charukaarora

Yes.

15:04.64

Roxy

So how it came along and like became a thing that I did in my work was basically to be able to work within a set of limitations that would make it easy for me to discuss about anything I wanted without being burdened with.

15:19.67

charukaarora

Okay.

15:24.17

Roxy

With other burden of like having to choose it ah topic or so I just had to go from that idea and then use whatever I find interesting enough in it and then apply it to my work.

15:33.71

charukaarora

So so that let’s let’s go a little bit in detail like how would you do that like would you pick up a work.

15:40.26

Roxy

I basically just go and just go on my Instagram I go like check out accounts of like old master’s work and then I’m just like oh this is hilarious I’m gonna recreate this one or whichever.

15:51.71

charukaarora

I going to create this one or.

15:58.12

Roxy

Like speaks to me and then from there I’ll recreate Basically the the.

16:00.61

charukaarora

And how do you? What is your process of recreation. Do you like? how do you bring you in those books.

16:09.68

Roxy

Ah, well I don’t necessarily use the exact exact same pose or I’m just the the rule the number 1 rule basically is just to try and and bring.

16:26.81

Roxy

Bring to life what what? the old masters would have done today in art cultural context. Basically so like um.

16:42.28

Roxy

For example, you have like those this portrait of these 2 women who are laughing at their phone if you look at the reference there. It’s 2 women laughing at like a letter like a love letter they received but instead I transformed it as like an unsolicited. Dick pick that they’re laughing at on the phone you can maybe add a note after with that reference to the work. But and then I was just like this is what it would be like today. So by saying.

17:10.80

charukaarora

E.

17:20.18

Roxy

That times change but people stay the same is that ah in in the core essence of what humans are we all have the same responses emotionally basically and we were the same people as. People that were here five hundred years ago or a thousand years ago so

17:40.35

charukaarora

I love the night. Yeah, um, do you think like being a mother also like you know like you said right now a being a mother also being a mother of a 14 year old who’s like ah like it’s a whole different ballgame being a 14 year old in today’s time looks very different.

17:55.81

Roxy

Yeah, yeah.

17:57.59

charukaarora

Being a food from the time you came I came ah has like I feel like I get a feeling that she and growing her growing up has also become somehow a part of your work.

18:10.30

Roxy

And um, she informs my work but ah, she’ll she. She’s my best critic Actually she’s just like.

18:13.53

charukaarora

In what way then.

18:23.99

Roxy

Did you finish the hair there because you could do better like I’m like okay you’re right like so in that way. Yeah Chin forms the work in that sense. But um I don’t incorporate her in the work because.

18:39.76

charukaarora

Yeah.

18:42.72

Roxy

First she’s my daughter and also she’s a child and I don’t I don’t paint children they’re creepy. But.

18:51.99

charukaarora

No, but you know what I feel like you know the language like you know I I saw your work the read receipts like it’s a lot of those um ideas either I don’t know I mean it’s our own personal. Maybe your own personal experience but also like how people young people today have.

19:01.70

Roxy

Ah.

19:08.54

charukaarora

Ah, very different language and a very different problems that you know they are experiencing So I Really love that work actually.

19:10.81

Roxy

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, absolutely. Ah, thank you? Um, but yeah, she will yeah she will inform me in that sense like she’ll tell me what’s cool. What’s not cool. What are.

19:27.13

charukaarora

Um, what’s not going.

19:28.19

Roxy

Was the language. What’s what’s not like what words not to use to sound cool or whatever but like she’s the one who’s basically running my Tiktok account. She makes all the big boss decisions. She’s like mom that’s lame. Don’t post that.

19:34.38

charukaarora

Um.

19:39.13

charukaarora

Oh my goodness.

19:47.86

Roxy

Ticktock is like new to me. So it’s like difficult to navigate it because like I just don’t know what kids are doing on there. But I think I got a hold of it now or at least soon. But yeah I was yeah, exactly so she helps in that way.

19:55.56

charukaarora

Now you all to have an expert bias side now.

20:05.10

charukaarora

Wonderful. But you know what when I was like even I was just checking out your the same work The read receives and I was like going through the scroll and you know it’s very interesting to me even though like you say like like. From the master’s work to who your work. It’s a whole new journey like it’s a whole new drama like do you when when you look at a work from what I can see from this like um.

20:40.72

charukaarora

When you look at a work I can see the master’s work has like an emotion and then you’ve really like really played with it and like really create it in your own style like do you pick up? How do you like decide like because there’s not like. 1 thing is to pick up details improvise edit but you have like a whole new like it’s still the same but it’s still a lot of different.

21:07.00

Roxy

Yeah I try to just grab the essences and stay vague about it so that I don’t have to like check too many boxes I Really just try to. Take the essence that I see that is like interesting enough to bring back to life. Basically I think but it’s not like I’m I’m actually trying to like redo the same exact like because the context.

21:33.28

charukaarora

Okay.

21:39.33

charukaarora

Yeah, absolutely.

21:45.31

Roxy

Have changed the culture has changed a lot of things have changed. But like if you and also most of these paintings are women who are just sitting in front of men being like bored like waiting for them to finish. So like there’s a lot of that also in the and the words it’s mostly it’s mostly only women because I’m I like these subjects are basically me so I feel like they need to be really close.

22:01.95

charukaarora

But a lot of women up appeared in your work a lot. Your work is a lot about Amy. Yeah.

22:20.41

Roxy

To being a woman or at least reflect my own my masculine side if they were to be in the work. So.

22:29.83

charukaarora

1 thing another thing I love about your work is your titles. They have a lot to say why what goes behind that you have a lot of fun there actually.

22:34.14

Roxy

So thank you? Yeah I yeah well so I won’t know what a title is like I’ll have a vague idea but sometimes like it’s normally like at the very end that I’ll choose a title. I’ll have it once I have it like it takes me about like 100 hours to paint 1 painting so I have a hundred hours to let it simmer basically on the on the back burner and then by the time I’m finished with the painting this is when I really sit in front of it and think about the title. And then I’ll have like my notes where I wrote different titles potential and then I’ll just I’ll go with the most relevant one and or funny sometimes they’re really really funny. Sometimes they’re really really long.

23:25.35

charukaarora

So is is humor a part of who you are actually as a person is humor a part of who you are actually as a person.

23:31.17

Roxy

Um, Oh yeah, well I wouldn’t say I’m that funny because like but I do appreciate a really good sense of humor in people. I think I have a great sense of humor I think but I’m no comedian. But yeah.

23:49.47

charukaarora

Truly it does reflect via your work even like I think I Really enjoy this like you know so until I’d really gone into your work on the front like you know when you look at someone looks at your work. It looks like this um female.

24:05.18

charukaarora

Ah, really polished because your work is very fine like super like flawless and it’s like it also looks like a lot like poised and finished and together and like you know like a perceptual image of when you look at someone’s work that looks so. Pull together. But when you go in and you know the story is like it’s quite a juxtaposition because they are like how it looks versus you know touch your titles and like your process like they are just um, it’s It’s a very.. It’s very unexpected I would say like.

24:33.67

Roxy

Right.

24:43.63

charukaarora

It’s not something that you expect when you look at your work and when someone goes into it and is like oh this is this is this is new.

24:49.42

Roxy

This is a yeah right by I Really like a good contrast in anything like even the way I dress I’ll wear like I don’t know I’ll I’ll wear things that don’t necessarily fit together because I think it It makes a nice highlight. Highlights better What you pair together and I think the same about the work. So I’ll put you someone with a face that too and then she’s just like politically sitting in clouds. So That’s the idea I think behind it.

25:23.53

charukaarora

Love that. Okay, then let me let me ask you a couple of questions which is not about the work but your own journey as an artist. Um did you? Um, you said you can like you became a full time artist a couple of years ago how long before that were you still painting like how did you find now like your work today is very popular your your work is loved on social media. You’re showing all around but I’m sure it wasn’t the case always can you talk a little bit about how um.

25:41.83

Roxy

Ah.

25:58.51

charukaarora

How has your journey been. What has been the hardest part for you as an artist.

26:02.23

Roxy

Well, the hardest part was always and still is like to to get rid of your your fear. Basically maybe not fear is not the right word but just like your. Your your doubts or your self critic or whatever you want to name it but like that the voice that is just like telling you trying to put you down getting rid of that is like it’s something that like it’s never like I’m still not not done with that. Voice or that inner Critic. It’s still there and alive but like to be able to push true like the moment where you’re not going to be able to make rent and like still push through and still like stick to your guns and say like this is worth it.

26:39.63

charukaarora

Um, see.

26:55.96

Roxy

First of all, maybe I’m delusional. Maybe I was delusional back then but I think the trick is just to be delusional long enough until you don’t have to be delusional anymore. So that’s I mean there’s there’s not an easy way to.

27:02.22

charukaarora

Make it. I Love that.

27:15.78

Roxy

To do things I think if success comes too quick. Maybe that’s because success in the long term might won’t work or maybe maybe it will I’m not saying that but sometimes it’s it just it’s good to have to push truth certain. Um, ah.

27:34.68

charukaarora

It gives you resence when you get through these struggles in obstacle loads and like it builds a character in you because.

27:35.40

Roxy

What’s the worst sorry it’s late over here. Yeah yeah, but yeah, it also pushes you to do better work because you’re like well okay, well if this didn’t work then I’ll just try harder and I’ll do something I’ll take a bigger risk.

27:47.55

charukaarora

Yeah, um.

27:49.98

charukaarora

Another 1

27:54.11

Roxy

And then maybe I don’t care what people think in the end because nobody cares about my work so you just go for it and then you just decide to just go all out and like put yourself out there. Basically.

28:05.26

charukaarora

Perfect. That’s amazing. Thank you so much before I let you go I have a small rapid fire for you. Are you ready? Okay, you’ll have to be quick.

28:11.34

Roxy

Roxy

Okay, those are questions I have to answer quickly. Okay, okay Rapid fire. Okay.

28:25.87

The best is actually when like school kids are using my art as like ah like a topic for like and presentation or like ah a research project or something this actually like is the best.

charukaarora

Ah I say how lovely Okay, how has technology um, played a role in your creative process has it enhanced. You does it work as a distraction. What’s what’s your in.

32:17.12

Roxy

Um, well I use I use every bit of technology that I can I’m still not touching ai because I I find that it might defy the purpose of my creation process. But anyways. That aside I use like I use a projector to sketch like I haven’t always did that like when I started basically I I was just like freehanding it. But yeah, but now I use a projector you just save countless amounts of hours basically doing that.

32:42.78

charukaarora

Free hand.

32:49.83

charukaarora

Yeah.

32:53.59

Roxy

I wouldn’t suggest it when you you just start off, but it’s definitely a tool that most painters today use because because you only have so many paintings you can do in a lifetime and if this changes the amount or the quality of your paintings. You should definitely use it.

33:03.26

charukaarora

Yeah.

33:11.37

charukaarora

Yeah.

33:13.40

Roxy

And I use the ipad and I work on procreate which is a basically drawing program and I basically do all my like photo montage there and arrange color or ads or substract certain things. But that’s about it. Oh and a camera I guess.

Ah, what’s the advice I would give I I wrote it I like I wrote this very like specific because I got I got that question asked maybe two days ago and I wrote something brilliant. But I can’t quite remember it right now but I would say one of the best advice I I read somewhere was to just become undeniable so work until your work can’t be questioned and this is where like.
