Hey Britty welcome welcome to the arts to hearts podcast. How are you doing same? Yeah I can’t as you know I’ve just been obsessing over your work for so long like and like every time I would scroll my feet and a big pot would come and I would be like.

00:05.77
Britty
I’m very well I’m very excited to be on the podcast. Thank you so much.

00:19.43
charukaarora
Like I was so I have your chairs and your pots and like you know stuff like that I’ve always always been obsessing and I’m so glad that you agreed to come on board. But before we go forward for anyone who’s listening to this episode would you like to introduce yourself who you are what you do to begin with.

00:34.41
Britty
Yes, so my name’ is bridy m I’m a contemporary artist that is based in Australia I tend to work with largecale scale canvases mostly an acrylic I’ve also now transferred some of the work to actual 3 hree-dimensional works like vases. But a lot of my work centers around looking at bringing out the whimsical and the magical in everyday objects that I guess would otherwise sometimes be overlooked or can be classified as mundane and sort of teasing out the elements within the work. That can layer upon metaphors and metaphors and metaphors and sort of bring a story to life from the object. So that’s sort of it in a nutshell.

01:12.17
charukaarora
Oh my god I think that was quite precise I really you know I didn’t think of your work in that way until I read about it but it would now I’m trying to connect both the dots because it did feel a lot whimsical when I would you you know i. Saw it and it also I didn’t know your ads your connection with Disney. Let’s also talk about that because you mentioned it somewhere on your website and since I’ve read that there’s nothing I mean I’m just imagining how great collaboration you would make like. You too need to collaborate because that would be so wonderful. It’s such a perfect alignment tell me more about it. Yes.

01:51.67
Britty
Ah, ah so where do you want me to start with the Disney so growing up as ah gosh. Okay, so I had at least a mom a little bit similar sounds like your background like a mom that was very creative as well. Architecture just.

02:07.26
charukaarora
Um, yeah.

02:08.41
Britty
Very crafty, really really good with everything and um, always somehow would always have me attending stage shows or plays or anything like that and then obviously being a young child Disney was right sort of ramping up at that stage and I was just clonked in front of all of these movies like. Ah, little mermaid beauty and the beast. Um and I was at Pocahontas I was just enthralled like I was obsessed with these Disney movies and I think maybe because the way that I was as a child I was always a little bit. Was introverted but also extroverted like I loved to perform but I was also quite shy and so I’m kind of like this introvert extrovert. So I was always putting on plays and shows. Um, but I was always a kid that was a little bit different because I was really highly sensitive to the external world. So when I watched these Disney movies I was like oh.

02:41.97
charukaarora
Um, and.

02:58.20
charukaarora
Yes, oh my god.

02:59.60
Britty
I was like this feels more real than my reality. So I just kept ah just kept stepping into the worlds of Disney so they’ve ended up having a massive massive influence on my work today as well as probably why I went into architecture previously because of the way they have that whimsical element. Um, in all of the structures of the movies and it’s just this I mean for any little girl I guess it’s a paradox too though, right? because I also know Disney has also had a negative programming for little girls. So it’s this push call where I’m we’re aware of that which has been a detriment but the actual.

03:28.93
charukaarora
Yes, yes, yes.

03:36.70
Britty
Scenes that were created in the Disney and there’s the magic that was in there was just it just felt like home. It just was like I want to that’s where I want to live? yeah.

03:41.14
charukaarora
Yes, you know you you support us such a great point where even this is such like you know this is a very common negotiation where we say like you know how Disney is also putting up a very um, um, realistic standard for women um in a lot of ways.

03:56.50
Britty
M.

04:00.63
charukaarora
Um, but now let’s say grown up 30 version further. We also need that because I don’t think if we didn’t have Disney we need like especially I think creators like us like anyone who creates in any sorts of form. We need an escapism to create a better reality like you know like you want.

04:14.33
Britty
Um, tardily.

04:20.60
charukaarora
I think if you is you’re such a perfect example like something that is not chill for let’s say like Disney they’ve inspired you and they pulled you into an imaginative world and now you’re creating entirely something different out of that tell me something you have had like a very um.

04:32.50
Britty
Totally.

04:39.23
charukaarora
Done fine arts architecture graphic design I can see totally all 3 of them in your work. But I want to understand and listen about you doing how things have happened I know that you you had like a sabbatical for 6 years you didn’t paint and like let’s let’s go back back in time and see how you started and.

04:43.65
Britty
Yes.

04:58.39
charukaarora
How did you come up here right? Yes, let’s go.

04:58.57
Britty
Okay, if you want to go right back? Okay, right? So I was always the kid though like I’m very aware that I was always the child in school that was more creative than the others I was always one of the kids that was countlessly drawing or creating so I was aware. Back at a really like I’m talking like five years old that I was definitely a little bit different in terms of how drawn I was to create the creative world and then it progressively just kind of stayed and stayed and stayed and I guess. Have to attribute my mom. My mom really fostered it like she encouraged it too. So she always let us have free creative expression growing up so I never had limitations on creativity. So then moving into high school I a little bit like what we were speaking about before I legitimately didn’t think art could be a career that you could actually um.

05:38.46
charukaarora
Clouds.

05:45.40
charukaarora
Really.

05:48.90
Britty
Live by I was like what and you can actually be an artist. This doesn’t make any sense so grateful for my high school teacher because then he fostered me in that regard and said look you’ve got a real talent. Let’s you know, get you moving into the space really encouraged me ended up developing my first solo show with me when I was. 7 just turning 17 and then I decided he was on like he’s I go to university and before that I actually wanted to be a psychologist and then before that a vet so it went from a vet to psychologist to. So um, he was like look photo.

06:14.76
charukaarora
Oh wow you have had such similar dreams like my oh my goodness I always wanted to be a wet me to I have 3 dogs.

06:25.50
Britty
Yeah I can like love animals I’m obsessed with them. So um I was yeah yeah I’ve got two so they you got 3 ah.

06:32.69
charukaarora
Oh.

06:35.64
Britty
What’s all I’d love to have a third but in Australia we’re not allowed to have 3 dogs unless you have like a certain size property. Otherwise I would think I would have a farm I would have so many dogs.

06:39.36
charukaarora
Here. Oh my goodness you’re talking So well. Oh god.

06:46.76
Britty
So So and then from there I Guess my teachers was like go to University Do your fine art degree went to University did my fine art degree was very disheartened in University though. Um, with the way that the structure was given around being an artist. But I guess because in University I Completely respect how they want you to try different mediums and and exploration but it just ended up pushing me so far away from painting that I lost that sort of I guess zest for it.

07:16.50
charukaarora
Yeah.

07:18.46
Britty
Um, did some couple more solo shows and then by the end of my fine art degree I was so disheartened that that’s when I thought I’m going to go be an architect I was like I feel like I need more structure didn’t last very long in architecture I did my whole degree worked in it for a few years with my mom and um was like.

07:34.24
charukaarora
Um, yeah, this yeah.

07:34.37
Britty
It’s so rigid and I wanted to exactly like who you’re saying create for me I didn’t want to create for anyone else anymore I was like I want to create my own things my own rules my own you know expression. So yeah, it then took that break and then obviously went back to um art painting about four years ago and then I’ve just really been hitting the ground running ever since.

07:49.84
charukaarora
Well.

07:54.60
Britty
And I just haven’t looked back and I know that this time it’s a non-negotiable like I’m just so aware in my bones that this is the path and nothing is going to deviate you off this path this time So that’s where we’re at now.

08:03.26
charukaarora
Lovely I think this is so nice you know, thank you firstley for sharing because I feel like you know this also happened with me I have done a bunch of things I still do a bunch of things. A lot of those things today I know that iola is about myself like I need like time. Ah. Flow and sometime to be restricted or like for for me to do anything for far too long. 1 single thing I need to create in multiple ways. But when I started off, you know like you’re saying you know moving from one course to another or like figuring things out I always thought I was a mess because I I mean you know you you’re told.

08:23.30
Britty
Move.

08:37.76
Britty
Um.

08:41.60
charukaarora
You You would get this one degree and then you would get this one career and that that’ll it be. How are your feelings when you were navigating and moving like you know first you did finance then you may do did architecture. How did you navigate that.

08:46.91
Britty
Yep.

08:50.81
Britty
Ah, a little bit the same so it was um because I’m not ah I’m not someone that ever quit. So that’s what so was really interesting is I actually started my art degree whilst I was still doing my fine art degree because I was like I want to finish the art degree. I don’t want to give up so I was simultaneously doing both while I had started the architecture degree I remember my teachers in university for fine art when I said I was I was going to move into architecture. They actually were so um. Critical. They were not happy that I was moving into architecture and then I remember on my final assessment one lecturer came up to me and he said I give you 5 years and you’ll be back in fine art. He’s like you’re gonna get so bored in architecture I was so angry at him. No it was kind of this like stuff you like how dare you say this to me. But um.

09:34.85
charukaarora
Ah, now.

09:43.10
Britty
So I kind of was fueled into moving into the architecture because I was like I’m gonna show you I’m gonna be a great architect So I didn’t necessarily have that that oh gosh I don’t know what I’m doing space and then subsequently obviously since so then I did a degree in um. Art therapy last year I think it was and that was just for fun because I love to learn I Just I Love intellect. Um, and just I love the mind how the mind Works. So I think I never necessarily had that sense of I’m jumping from thing to thing to thing to thing I think because one I’m really competitive and then 2.

10:02.80
charukaarora
Fun. Yeah. Yeah.

10:19.87
Britty
I’ve always been someone who’s just like whatever I do I’m going to do it Well so I’m like if I move from this space to this space I’ll learn to master it. So yeah I don’t know it’s a really good question actually.

10:22.53
charukaarora
Yes, love that? No I think it’s a ah I think we all because by the time we grew up I think creative professions have become in quite a limelight today. Um, people have had great examples like you know if you even ask um students in a class today. A lot of them want to become Youtube where someone wants to become an artist someone wants to become like the percentage has changed drastically because they have examples. They see what’s possible for them and.

10:50.58
Britty
Checks.

10:56.78
Britty
Hundred percent

10:59.90
charukaarora
That gives them a confi conviction of you know and also singing like you know you don’t have to be 1 thing like a youtuber is a business owner is an artist and a youtuber let’s say or if there’s there’s a teacher teachers. Ah I think a lot of us are today creators in in many forms. No matter what a primary job is.

11:14.30
Britty
Very ah agree.

11:18.17
charukaarora
But when we grew up I think the the big biggest difference at least I know for myself that a I thought I always had examples where people would do only 1 thing so I always had this notion that I had to do 1 thing and I have to be very good at it. But unfortunately that wasn’t someone like me I couldn’t commit like.

11:29.50
Britty
Yes.

11:36.10
charukaarora
For me as a creator if you ask me that I have to create like just 1 thing in all my life I don’t think I can do that for me, the fun is in experimentation. The fun isn’t you know I love to be challenged and unless there’s something new that does not come my way I get bored I need to have a challenge and.

11:41.76
Britty
Yes.

11:53.00
Britty
Yes, yes I feel you.

11:54.88
charukaarora
Ah, new thing brings back for me and also yeah and also like you know, um, like you said learning like today I I take a million courses now and I love I think I love educating myself I think dude I I can’t even talk about how how much I love that because it’s. It It’s such a beautiful process because you feel like and it’s but it’s so different from who I was before because you know you the way you at least I grew up in India you know we were told or maybe just stereotyped that. Okay, you finish your school then you go to college and then you know you take a job and then you know. You do this and that and like for most of us our learnings were till there and it wasn’t a lot of people. We didn’t see a lot of people like you know someone doing one course and then working at it and then realizing. Okay, this isn’t something that we want to do but I did that when I did a course. Let’s say I did my history I was.

12:36.35
Britty
6

12:45.67
Britty
Um.

12:51.22
charukaarora
I was terrible I can’t even tell you how miserable I was about it but I learned unless I didn’t do it I couldn’t figure it out I mean to today at least I look back and I have no regret that I didn’t try it and feel like oh my god maybe that was it.

12:58.23
Britty
Yes.

13:07.57
charukaarora
After like you know, like you said I feel that contentment in you like you did a bunch of things you realized you chase like you know you said you wanted to try fluidity. You did finance then you wanted to try structure. You style tried um architecture and then traffic design and then you realize like you know it’s neither this nor that but it’s a unique.

13:19.14
Britty
Um.

13:26.32
charukaarora
Combination of what fits for you and now that you’ve learned bits of it. You you you’re using that in your own practice. But we’re not told this we never told this nobody tells you.

13:31.91
Britty
Yes, totally hundred percent no you spot on.

13:40.22
charukaarora
Right? I mean nobody tells you that you have like you can do ° and figure out what what suits you best and maybe then create your own mix.

13:40.61
Britty
Got you.

13:47.91
Britty
Hundred for that I totally agree with you. It’s it’s a very um I think he is even my mom and I mean she’s she’s a big supporter of me. But I think it was even about oh must have been eight years ago and we were around a dinner table and she was talking about art and obviously had had sort of stepped away from painting for a while. And someone was having a conversation. There was another gentleman at the table that was a family friend and he’s an artist and always has been painting and my mom made this comment that was sort of like ah you know it’s really hard to make a living as an artist and so I remember just thinking.

14:21.37
charukaarora
Um, yeah.

14:21.52
Britty
It’s just so ingrained in us that we’re supposed to have this linear path that’s do x y z and this is what happens so you spot on ah in terms. Also I’ve noticed most creatives. They can’t just focus on 1 thing like a lot of creatives. So love to diversify into multiple areas and I can’t imagine.

14:31.96
charukaarora
Yeah, right.

14:39.38
Britty
Not I also know that I have like a mild form of Adhd. So for me to concentrate on 1 thing for too long actually is really challenging as well I have to be doing multiple like that’s why with my art practice I have my paintings but then I have social media. There’s creating digital works like there’s all these different avenues that I at least get to play around with that.

14:44.74
charukaarora
Invite right.

14:51.91
charukaarora
Yeah.

14:59.26
Britty
Kind of enrich that creative expression that you want to play with. So yeah I Totally hear you on that. It’s so true.

15:04.27
charukaarora
Ah, okay, tell me something when you decided after then you figured your magic portion. You figured that okay painting was something that you’re now committed to but I think you came up with a different approach this time you became more of who you are versus what people expected of you I think that we will do that when we. Come back to something how it let’s also see your difference in your work before and now and how you figure on to this. You know this naurration this subject the style and line was it always like this. Um, how was that evolution.

15:25.16
Britty
Tardily.

15:37.58
Britty
Ah, okay, so it’s It’s really interesting because I don’t even know if there’s access to some of my old work because there wasn’t even really like I think I had a website back on that. But it’s I mean with social media didn’t exist. So. The work back then was very much driven. Um by a lot more pain I would say so the work was a lot more.. It was dark. It had a little bit more abstract elements. It also had figurative women in them and it sounds really graphic. But I was really at the time battling a lot of um.

16:01.14
charukaarora
Night here.

16:14.48
charukaarora
Yeah.

16:14.50
Britty
Male dominatminated oppression that was put on me and I was trying to find a way to use my voice I had gone through a lot of trauma as well. But it was not spoken about so I was trying to find a voice a lot of the work had these naked women. They had no head and they were wearing a red pair of shoes and the red pair of shoes were symbolic of.

16:32.82
charukaarora
Um I can’t imagine you have to share something.

16:33.57
Britty
You know the women’s own power. So the work was a lot darker beautiful work but a lot darker. It was yet very different to now. Um, ah yeah, if I can find some stuff I’m going to have to start sharing it because it’s It’s all catalogued somewhere. Um and then it kind of obviously.

16:47.20
charukaarora
Is.

16:52.44
Britty
Was working in that space for um, that must have been about at least six or seven years that I was creating that type of work and then obviously that’s when I stepped away for a period of time when I came back to the art world I was like okay, we’re gonna paint again. I just had no desire. Whatsoever to create with dark colors. It was just this like I think because what was happening was when I when you’re younger, you’re still trying to find yourself and you’re still trying to find your voice by the time I went back to painting I was like okay we’ve we’ve dealt with some trauma. We’ve dealt with some healing aspects and if I continued to paint in dark colors. It was going to keep feeding.

17:18.10
charukaarora
Yeah.

17:24.24
charukaarora
Yeah. Um, yeah.

17:30.99
Britty
My past so I was like we’re going to start painting with really bright colors and we’re going to start painting and creating the worlds that you actually want to live in or that you want to be surrounded by so the work just took on a whole different space of I started just getting different visions different aspects of you know.

17:37.77
charukaarora
Oh wow.

17:48.70
Britty
The the walls the rooms little you know and dream spaces and I just started creating them from there so it was It was such a a different time from what I was creating to now it’s It’s literally like black and white. You wouldn’t even know it’s the same artists. It’s just.

17:59.73
charukaarora
Ah, Wow really.

18:04.47
Britty
Yeah, you would not know because it was just so different even the work when I was younger too A lot of it was a little bit more mixed media. It was a lot more spontaneous too like a lot of the work was very go to the canvas start creating start So I was sewing bits into the work. The work now is very methodical. It’s very Planned. It’s very meticulous. So I really changed the way I was painting probably because I also required a little bit more structure and the way that I now know how I work is I need a bit of structure and routine to actually function. So my work has to sort of by the way.

18:19.70
charukaarora
Yeah.

18:28.77
charukaarora
Um, yeah, you’ve also brought your elements of um, your elements of architecture I feel with that even in not only literally in your work but also in the way you but work I think that’s.

18:43.00
Britty
Hundred percent hundred percent most definitely yeah, definitely.

18:45.49
charukaarora
Again, all our experiences add on to our realities today in some or the other way. So but then how did you come to like these womensic girls and you know these these beautiful creators and let’s also talk about the first time you created a work as such in in this.

19:02.88
Britty
Oh oh, that was terrible I literally so I so I started.

19:03.36
charukaarora
Concept or let’s hear the story How that triggered for you How I mean you would just say did you just sit one day look at a chair and like okay let me paint a chair today.

19:15.00
Britty
And so it started with women I started painting um portraits so I started the very first woman I ended up executing Well no, actually if I go back when I first started painting and I was doing dogs I started just doing these black outlines of dogs heads.

19:31.22
charukaarora
We are seeing those.

19:32.97
Britty
With florals all around that’s kind of like the first way I started I was like okay I’m just gonna play for fun and I’m just going to do some fun stuff and just see where it goes from mayor once I can’t just got confident I was using it all as testing ground just to make sure that I could still paint to make sure I’d never painted so execution either. So I really wanted to have like hours and hours of. Practice to make sure that the work was so pristine from there once I got the confidence back I was like okay, we’ve we’ve mastered being able to paint you know the way we want to paint again. Let’s go into portraits. So then I think the first portrait I painted was Iris upful and that went to a gallery. And then from there I just started painting a few more women’s portraits. They started all selling so I was like okay this is great but then by about a year in I just was like this is boring me I ah like it’s beautiful I’ve painted these amazing strong women but I’m bored I want to start like expanding and and that’s when I started creeping into probably.

20:11.22
charukaarora
Re righting.

20:26.11
Britty
Inspiration from my background with Disney um architecture and I just wanted to create rooms that were an escapism for my own pain that I had been through so that’s when the chairs started being introduced and now obviously they’re evolving even more. There’s the vases. The windows.

20:41.28
charukaarora
And.

20:43.72
Britty
Just so many different elements that are laying on top of each other and it’s just pouring out now. It’s just like snowballing so but the first the first portrait that I did I was doing a a play one like a muckup one that I was trying to do before I did the iris one and it went so so wrong I can’t even like if I took a photo it was. Horrid. It was so bad that I sat in my studio and I cried for three days straight and I thought I can’t do this I I can’t do this this I’m terrible I can’t paint this is shocking. What am I doing like it was the most self-defeating self-tort for three days and defeat I just was.

21:15.58
charukaarora
Oh God then.

21:20.42
Britty
Going to walk away again and then I thought Nope you you just shut up and just figure it out and just keep going and so I then yeah just somehow switched the mindset painted the rrs up full painting and it came out beautiful and then the rest just kind of just flowed from there but it was painful.

21:22.78
charukaarora
You keep doing.

21:31.43
charukaarora
Snow wild.

21:37.23
Britty
Going back to painting was really really painful.

21:38.20
charukaarora
Yeah, it not only painting I’m also interested in knowing ah now like you know how? Ah how does it your day look like do you spend a lot of time alone I’m sure you would.

21:47.39
Britty
Oh yeah I do I spend a lot of time alone and it’s um, it’s it’s actually a funny conversation I had with someone the other day about this because I know some people have difficulty being alone I have 0 difficulty being.

21:58.88
charukaarora
Um, yeah.

22:02.71
Britty
In my space alone if anything I thrive in it because I think I’m such a sensitive person if I’m around actually too many people at a time I start to become a little bit. Yes, yeah, totally So I have to recharge.

22:04.47
charukaarora
Yeah, may oh god I feel like you’re taught hi can so so I think it’s ah it’s also a little bit. Um, it’s it’s for me, it’s a love and hate relationship i’m. I’m a tall and I love I love my alone time I need space and even as a creat we need time to think be yourself and sometimes just do nothing at all. So I leisure that but also um I think a when I was living and even now I’m going to begin living alone again before that also for 10 years I was living.

22:28.31
Britty
Uru.

22:44.25
charukaarora
At that point I think um for inspiration and for experiences there needs to be like um that needs to be healthy I think for me I’ve realized um I’d rather choose that loneliness that I still love but over experience but over the wrong company.

22:58.12
Britty
M.

23:03.60
charukaarora
Think that was my biggest learning I thrived in the last two years when I worked alone but I wasn’t alone like I’ve had my podcast I’ve had people that I will you know I was um, working with and all of that but they were very intentional choices like you said like as ah as a high as a sensitive person.

23:16.53
Britty
Yes.

23:21.32
charukaarora
The moment I go into a wrong company is all messed up and I’m like oh God What did I do.

23:23.20
Britty
Yes, exactly.

23:27.24
charukaarora
But you tell me how was your shift even then I mean were you before painting? Let’s say architect Geographic um, were you working alone then you suddenly shifted any transitions like that.

23:41.80
Britty
It’s ah yes, and no like I look back as a kid and I was always um, a kid so I was never a loner. That’s what’s weird I and it was never a kid that was like always kind of in school by myself I was always around people like I always had a. I was always kind of the kid that was um I guess and I hate to use the term popular but I was always in that group where yeah I was always sporty or always achieving so I was I always had some sort of like status in school and then it um.

24:02.72
charukaarora
Um, yeah.

24:13.16
Britty
So I was never alone but then even when I went into architecture I guess I was never working solely alone. But I’ve always been someone that has known that I’ve been highly sensitive and that I have to be mindful if I’m around lots of people for too long. It absolutely drains me and. Have to have recharge time. So I’ve just always been aware of that though. So I think I’ve always had to manage it and I’ve had to manage it even more so probably in the last two years especially like as I get older. They’re actually more aware I get of certain situations and examples. So I do find like painting alone I love being alone all.

24:30.66
charukaarora
He has.

24:38.38
charukaarora
Um, yeah.

24:47.76
Britty
Day sometimes because I can just have the music on I can just I have my space to do what I want in my studio but then I also do love being around people because it’s energy and I love being able to connect and thrive and if you’re around someone who’s like minded who has the same energy magic can happen like it can be so exciting.

24:55.15
charukaarora
Yes. Right? Absolutely That’s so true. Okay, okay now tell me about your process that is today I know that you said it is myological and you know you have a.

25:06.12
Britty
So I’ve got to find the balance.

25:18.48
charukaarora
Have a approachach. It’s more calculative with versus before and I’ve read about it but I want to hear from you. How do you approach your work today.

25:20.93
Britty
Um, so I approached the work at the beginning it was as I said I had to not force but I really had to be very intentional About. Um, creating to say I had a room or a scene in my mind and I had to be very intentional about creating it I’ve become a little bit more relaxed now because the work is literally just spilling into each other very effortless effortlessly. So but the way that I’ll create a process. The process will be just say I might have.

25:45.19
charukaarora
Yeah.

25:54.51
Britty
An inspiration that I see or an image or if I’m dreaming or daydreaming. There’ll be a sort of a scene that I’ll see then I’ll start to sketch that scene on a piece of paper put some elements and some colors then I’ll tend to go to the computer and start playing with composition because.

26:10.92
charukaarora
Yeah, yeah, no.

26:11.10
Britty
Because I guess that’s the design eye. That’s also what I’m so like I’m like it has to aesthetically work and look good and have the balance and the composition. So I’ll go into the computer play around with the elements see does this work does this work. Oh I could add this this and this once I’ve done that then I will pick all of the colors that I want to work with. And then move to the canvas and then it’s like two weeks straight of executing that piece then the works that have come from that though it sort of mean they’re a lot more effortless like now I don’t necessarily have so much of okay I want the room to do this It’s now a lot more experimentation like I might have a vase that I’ll sketch and then I’m like oh I’m going to start incorporating the windows. I think the work is um, really starting to develop a visual vocabulary There’s a lot of scenes metaphors and symbols that are starting to become on repeat and that’s when I’m noticing. Ah this is what my visual vocabulary is really starting to develop and look like.

26:51.10
charukaarora
Yes.

26:58.92
charukaarora
Memory right? right? That’s why you I loved I think I Also loved how once those you know the bosses that you painted in your paintings had come to life in 3 d. I Think that was also as a viewer great experience to how was your experience with that. Were you familiar with poetry before or did you How did that happen.

27:23.14
Britty
No. So what happened was last year I wanted to paint so I find it really challenging to paint really tiny because most of my work is so large and I funny enough I do japanese tea ceremonies and the. School that I attend for japanese tea ceremonies had a potter that lived on the same property and I went to a japanese tea pottery bowl class on a weekend and this pottered was there and we ended up talking and I just sort of said to him I was like hey and then we started talking and he sort of said, let’s collaborate and I said I would love you to actually. Create some pieces for me if I design them show you what I want you to look like can you execute them for me. So I just did this for fun because I was like I wanted to expand create something new when you’re creative too and you gets a bit stuck with your process. It’s like try something new so had him create 3 pieces for me and then I handpated on them and i.

28:04.66
charukaarora
Um, yes, right.

28:14.62
charukaarora
Your guide.

28:14.98
Britty
Ah, doored it like I loved it. Loved it. Loved it. I’m definitely going to release another series this year. But then from there once I did these pots all of a sudden these ideas started flowing in of like well wait a minute. Why don’t we put the pots and then incorporate the chairs in the pots and the paintings and it.

28:27.74
charukaarora
yes yes yes yes I was actually looking at your work I just started very o and I was like you know I saw first your work was minimal where the chair the chair appeared.

28:30.67
Britty
It’s just started to take on a life of its own now. So it it obviously was meant to be because it was a little thread that.

28:45.60
charukaarora
But the chair had very controlled design and then I saw that you stood took a more feed and you know the design got more detail your conviction started growinging and then the chair became more detailed and then there was an added figure and then there was a background then there were borders and like I could see that progression and that how you were figuring it out. But you know that made sense to me as a viewer that was obvious but what was so amazing to watch while I was viewing this as a timeline was like how I saw the chairs then I saw the pods then I saw the birds then I saw a boss and then suddenly I saw all of them.

29:07.13
Britty
Yep.

29:20.78
Britty
Um, yeah.

29:23.17
charukaarora
You know, painting like there was a was there was a chair in it and everything was in the was and I was like this is so outstanding. This was I was that was so so good I think that that’s one of my favorite works of yours Actually I Love that idea.

29:35.67
Britty
Ah, beautiful. Thank you so much. Yeah, it’s It’s interesting. It’s been interesting even for myself because I wasn’t even aware of what was happening it just was this progression that just started to move from thing to thing to thing to thing and now I’m noticing I’m like Wow All of these elements are really integrating and creating.

29:53.82
charukaarora
Yes.

29:54.25
Britty
Ah, holistic piece now from all of these elements that I was playing with for so many years. So it’s it’s been. It’s been quite exciting Actually the work that I’m creating this year I’m I’m really excited about too because it’s kind of going a little bit further and further and further and incorporating some more quirky aspects that I’ve been wanting to put in the work for a while. So.

30:01.79
charukaarora
Um I am.

30:11.74
Britty
Yeah, I’m excited. Yeah.

30:11.92
charukaarora
I Love that I’m so excited to see what’s going to come out of a head now because I was just the way I was even looking at your work I was like you know this makes sense this makes sense this makes sense. Yes, yeah, and blue like it was like oh my God How did I mean I think those you know this all.

30:22.85
Britty
I Love it.

30:30.44
charukaarora
Something I really want to touch upon like when we see someone’s work. We feel oh my God um or success and we feel like you know this. It took only this time or how is you know we always feel but if you look like even while I was seeing your journey. It was so many years of work.

30:44.40
Britty
Yeah, totally it’s it takes time and that’s something I’ve had to learn is patience because I’m so most artists I think can be quite impatient. Well no some but some are actually artists are very very patient but I’m not so.

30:46.34
charukaarora
And actually brought you to this work.

30:53.10
charukaarora
Right.

31:02.45
Britty
I had to really be patient with the process and and realize that it’s going to take some time to really get into that groove where you all of a sudden can really feel that this is this is your this is your space. This is what your space to be working in and honestly I think I’ve only just started in scratching the surface now I actually now feel like the next few years are actually going to probably be.

31:07.54
charukaarora
Yes. Um, night. Yes.

31:22.19
Britty
Where the real work starts and the last few have just been a lot more of um, a little bit of play warm up. Yes, exactly.

31:24.38
charukaarora
Nan Warm ups. I Think that’s that’s how I think I this this feeling will never end I think as creators we always see like the best is yet to come or you know we’re yet to create our past and I think that’s also what keeps us inspired because if we become so content with what you’re making then what.

31:34.79
Britty
Um, tarly.

31:45.80
charukaarora
I Don’t think we’ll have the motivation or the desire to keep home I don’t know and I think that works for me any day I feel like oh this has become good I feel like now I need to do something that makes me feel challenged like I mean what’s the thrill.

31:47.59
Britty
A very true. Yeah.

31:55.72
Britty
Exactly It’s so true he said yeah the mind of a creative people. Don’t get it. They’re always like what is going on in the market. Ah me too right? Yeah, no way. But.

32:02.26
charukaarora
I Don’t get myself sometimes but um, sometimes the way the thoughts sometimes I feel like oh my God What is wrong with you talking. But I mean sometimes thoughts that come on like how how can you even think like that and but that’s how I am and I. Instead of fighting those instincts and kind of like thoughts. You know I have to just acknowledge them and work them out. Okay, yeah.

32:26.88
Britty
So yes, so true acceptance I have had to the last few years I’ve been the biggest battle of accepting who I am I’ve had to accept it.

32:34.46
charukaarora
And it does make the journey even more beautiful and I think bearable for our own self because unless we don’t love our ownelves I don’t think there’s there’s any other way to move forward I think there’ll be so much more pain for.

32:40.65
Britty
Moon.

32:46.92
Britty
Very true. Very yep I Completely agree with you.

32:52.40
charukaarora
Okay, now your work first. How do you cook these stories like to have like is it very instinctive like you would come up I remember the book moon by the chair. What was it called the one with the parrot the chair.

33:06.33
Britty
Which one.

33:10.83
charukaarora
And the the room with Parrot and charance was night night Moon It was longer than this. Yes, Yes, yes yes.

33:13.56
Britty
Ah, they there was one there might ah there was Quarter Quarter Moon in blue room and then there was yes so there’s because yeah, I’m using a lot of moon references in the latest work. So a lot of them have via Quarter Moon Full Moon in the work. Um, so. But question was how do I create those stories.

33:31.86
charukaarora
Yes, like so I’m trying to connect the 2 dots first this is this is the intuitive part of your work which is the stories that you’re creating these are eventsicers. But there’s also a message that is like you know you’ve you spoken about materialism consumerism and escapism. Let’s.

33:38.12
Britty
Yep.

33:50.63
charukaarora
Let’s take let’s hear how your mind works when you create these works conceptually and aesthetically like also making them vincable but also have like a context if that is it.

33:59.62
Britty
Yeah, for sure so a lot of those I’m going to go back to actually how the stories originate a lot of it is because it’s metaphors and stories within stories. That’s the biggest key with some of this new work. So every element that is placed in the work. Has some sort of metaphorical meaning or hidden story behind it and then they’re laid on top of another. So if you start to dissect the work you have birds the birds are used as a totem for 1 freedom two. They could be regarded as feminine 3 birds. Tend to be the most curious creature in terms of they collect objects and kind of create nests and it was a question that I had where I was like well how unlike you know if that’s an in natural instinct for a bird to create objects for something to look aesthetically beautiful.

34:36.17
charukaarora
Um, yeah, yeah.

34:49.51
Britty
Is that so wrong that humans are doing the same behavior through consumerism. So yeah, so that’s like 1 aspect and then I’ve now incorporated these room. Ah sorry the windows and the windows are another aspect of trying to break free from the constraint room.

34:50.15
charukaarora
Right? 2 lines.

35:06.21
Britty
And then the chairs started being incorporated because chairs for one of the most familiar um objects that people can identify with and they usually have the biggest story that someone can identify with then what happens on top of that is that what’s ended up happening to be honest is a lot of the chairs are actually a metaphor for my own life.

35:11.56
charukaarora
Dyke.

35:23.67
Britty
Because as I was a child growing up I endured so my whole life I’ve had so Much. Um I’d say hardship and just a lot of different things that I’ve had to traverse even up until adulthood like a lot that keeps getting knocked at me and a lot of the time growing up I didn’t necessarily have. By no fault or blame of parents or anyone around me but I didn’t have necessarily anyone asking are you okay like it was and I guess back in the day too. But there wasn’t enough awareness also for trauma like there’s a lot more coming out now and you know with how to cope with things So as a child I kind of was.

35:48.36
charukaarora
Um, yeah, yeah, that’s true, right.

36:00.52
Britty
Left to sort of just fend because I had a lot of illnesses severe like a lot of things that went wrong. So no one really said like are you? Okay so I was sort of left to just be like oh my gosh. How do I cope with all of this So the chair became this metaphor of of sort of this pristine object.

36:10.94
charukaarora
Yeah.

36:18.76
Britty
That then begs the question like what does the exterior of a person actually look like like what does the aesthetic look like what’s them hidden meaning behind the aesthetic. So That’s how I end up constructing these stories is. It’s essentially like a collation of all these metaphors that I put into one piece of work. That actually creates a scene then from there in terms of I Guess I think your second the other thing that you mentioned was maybe the aesthetic and why it’s so clean work that I think is just also been.. It’s the only way that I can.

36:41.12
charukaarora
You. Yes.

36:54.71
Britty
Convey it because I guess the mind can be so structured and rigid. But if I tried to probably convey the work through a little bit more of a messy structure. It might not have the potency or the crispness or the bluntness that I’m actually wanting to have come across in the work. So I try to make it as pristine and crisp as possible.

37:05.13
charukaarora
Yeah.

37:12.35
Britty
So that is is easily to interpret when you’re looking at the piece. Hopefully that makes sense.

37:14.67
charukaarora
Over I Love that sharpness in your work I Absolutely did I’m my I’m myself like I love sharp like clean lines and you know and probably that’s also because we’ve had similars you know graphic um, experiences and influences and I feel like I.

37:24.25
Britty
M.

37:31.35
Britty
And then.

37:34.36
charukaarora
Really as a consumer I Love viewing work I Love cats work. You know the fluid the impass one like the know the expressionism. But for some reason I can’t and I just can’t bring myself to do it Even if I’ve tried I just feel like I have this compulsive urge to make things look clean I mean aesthetticly.

37:50.59
Britty
Yes, meter Major Yeah no I’m the same.

37:54.40
charukaarora
For me I Of course you, you’re definitely that and okay, tell me how hard is it for you like you have like this pitch clean lines like an acrylic I’ve never come to do like I Just can’t manage a like I have your life and especially I Think. Like large scale a analytics I hatch off. But how do you bring these lines just so sharp and clean.

38:19.74
Britty
It’s honestly practiced. They’re so easy now like it’s very effortless Now it’s It’s a really easy process at the beginning. It was obviously tough but I just kept persisting persisting persisting persisting until it became like a meditation practice. So now it’s like I don’t even have to think.

38:20.88
charukaarora
Um, and.

38:26.70
charukaarora
Um, yeah.

38:35.35
charukaarora
Crown.

38:36.24
Britty
When I’m doing the line work. It’s just so so second nature because it’s hours and hours and hours and hours of practice. Um, so I can’t can’t think of to be honest of any other way to paint anymore I can’t imagine doing anything that was not structured to the degree that it’s.

38:52.76
charukaarora
Yes, you know.

38:54.96
Britty
And structured and and the precision but it’s it’s it’s just practice. Honestly, it’s just taken hours and hours and hours of patients of getting the lines right over and over and over to the point that it just the hand and the body just starts to it becomes second nature.

39:03.30
charukaarora
Lovely. Lovely I love you wearing a like Donald duck and a mini mouse I just noticed I I’d been looking at your t-shirt all this while and it just stuck to me like you know this is what we’ve been talking about.

39:14.48
Britty
Yeah, ah Disney. Ah.

39:22.46
Britty
I know I didn’t realize either I thought I half funny hour ro it I’m wearing a Disney shift.

39:28.19
charukaarora
I Love how subconsciously we we also I think with the the biggest blessing of making art is sometimes it tells us more about who we are than we already know.

39:41.14
Britty
Ah, so true. Ah so True. That’s where that’s why I went and done the out therapy path because I actually wanted to learn more about the subconscious that can be hidden within creativity and how much the subconscious even through art therapy when someone is dealing with an issue or even if they want to be more created. It. Always ends up coming out the subconscious on the page. It’s it’s without sale and it’s just fascinating to me how you said the subconscious will always deliver. It’s always there.

40:00.83
charukaarora
Um, yes, and lovely. Okay now I have last questions and we’ll go last question and we’ll go into the rapid file which is not a create like one very. Um, hot topic that everyone struggles with is finding we all I think the way that we Structured. We All are able to we enjoy the challenge of being creatively challenged I think but a lot of artists struggle when it comes to business when it comes to you know finding how to find their place. As an artist to make this as a living and to you know to make sense of it to scale this and you know all of those things. How has your experience been with that. How are you working that out. How what is your learning curve.

40:40.37
Britty
Um.

40:49.26
Britty
Yeah, okay, good question. Um I think I am partly grateful because I have always been business. Orientated to some degree I’ve always run business I’ve never worked for anyone else unless it was in architecture for my mom’s firm. That’s the only person I’ve ever worked for because I I just can’t do it. It’s too difficult I don’t like rules and I love being the leader I Love being the person that’s at the front I hate answering questions to someone. So.

41:12.65
charukaarora
Um, he.

41:22.40
Britty
I’ve always had an entrepreneurial um blood. It’s just it runs in me. My brother’s an entrepreneur. My mom owns are an architecture company. So it’s always been sort of instilled the business side so it wasn’t too daunting for me I Also think my personality type I’m highly highly driven like I’m a very ambitious.

41:22.83
charukaarora
Yeah.

41:42.32
Britty
I have a ton of energy. So I go after things and I just sort of I I always find an answer if someone’s like how do we do this I’m I’ll Google it I’ll figure it out like I’ll just sort it out. So I’ve always been someone who’s an absolute strategy research nut. So when it came to like the logistics I would spend hours.

41:49.54
charukaarora
Yes, yes.

41:58.83
Britty
And connecting dots and be like okay well this gallery is here and this is here and this is why this does this So the business. It’s definitely been hard though. It’s not hasn’t been easy because there’s so many moving parts to being an artist like you have so many things to look out for in terms of contracts. Um shipping you know inventory.

42:02.44
charukaarora
Oh Love that. Um, yeah.

42:17.85
Britty
Communication with other galleries social media that there’s so many moving parts that you do need to be mindful and on top of and it’s only now that I’ve started hiring help because I can’t do it all on my own anymore I’m like I need help I don’t have enough hours in a day but I do have to say I’ve been grateful that the business side was something that excited me it didn’t daunt me.

42:23.25
charukaarora
Um, yeah now.

42:34.74
charukaarora
Yeah, Don yeah lovely I think this is a learning curve. You will experience especially luckily even I had that so I’ve been figuringing that out but nonetheless I think it’s just for people who like us also have you know.

42:37.79
Britty
But I do need help now. So I don’t get overwhelmed.

42:53.92
charukaarora
Inspiration inclination and the determination to go that path. It’s still difficult. But for people who don’t have any of those I think it’s such a break like also the the idea of starving artists and you know what of those things that are still a huge huge. Um.

42:59.71
Britty
Tardily.

43:11.80
Britty
Totally yeah, it can be daunting like it can be definitely daunting the business side of there’s so many things to do I hired Also I was clever in terms of I always hired someone that I knew could help me so I know you’ve interviewed penny. So um.

43:11.65
charukaarora
Barrier.

43:26.16
charukaarora
Um, we Wow help.

43:27.21
Britty
Pennys like ah I adore her and I’ve been working with her for years now. So I hired her because I was like I need help I need to know how to navigate some of this I hired another coach last year too for about three months just to help me figure out the ins and outs of the contracts. So I always realize if you don’t know something and you need to level up.

43:41.82
charukaarora
Yeah I love that? No right? So smart I think and I think it’s also great like even that’s how I work like and even in the minuteis I think I tried working out for so long. It never made sense to me.

43:45.22
Britty
Hire Someone take the weight off your shoulders like it’s worth. It’s really worth it.

43:59.91
charukaarora
Only until I realized I only needed a good coach with me that person could help me a I didn’t know how to what kind of workout work for me or like you know I am 30 I knew five thirty in the morning I had to be there and someone who is holding me accountable. And that someone was making the effort of making sure that which direction I was going in because I like that knowledge and that is like even like with arts, 2 hearts or even with my own tractors I know like if I need to take a business course or do like working with penny lane or like you know it makes things so much easier. Also we spend so much of time alone.

44:17.16
Britty
Yep.

44:31.70
Britty
Yep, first.

44:35.40
charukaarora
It’s also it’s like a great collaboration with others who bring a specific skill set that you don’t have to build you can rely on them.

44:38.12
Britty
Totally totally. No definitely I agree I Completely agree. It’s the biggest thing I tell people like if you don’t know how to do something higher like ah like hire a coach like it’s the best investment you will ever make because it makes life so much easier.

44:48.90
charukaarora
Yes, um night listen’ give me 1 se my dog’s when to break the door otherwise who I’m sick one sick.

44:57.30
Britty
No worries.

45:06.99
charukaarora
Um, but not good. You look very bad.

45:25.52
charukaarora
Here we go. Okay, this she? Yeah yeah oh God I I am still in my room upstairs and this one is like ah she’s like um, she would.

45:28.55
Britty
Ah, we have 3 dogs so it makes sense.

45:41.90
charukaarora
I Have to either bring her in or keep her out and out as in I forgot to lock another door. That’s why she landed up on my door Otherwise either she’s in or she would break the door and she would want the door to be opened right? then So she’s been knocking and banging and then barking and either I open or she’s going to break it.

45:46.85
Britty
Um, yeah.

45:52.81
Britty
Yes, yeah, yeah, no I’ve got a dog like that to you is the same. It’s demanding.

50:01.35
charukaarora
Wow! yes. Love that amazing I can we do check his workout and share in the show or not yes okay as a woman entrepreneur as a creative entrepreneur that you all are what’s it 1 advice that you like to.

50:14.69
Britty
Yeah, it’s got cool work.

50:25.86
charukaarora
Gave to other artists people who are starting the careers in middle of the careers anywhere. Whatever is your wisdom. What you think you’ve learned.

50:30.34
Britty
Ah, there’s 2 things probably the first thing is believe in yourself ah to an endless degree. You have to believe in yourself because some people won’t and you have to have that burning desire to.

50:42.70
charukaarora
Yeah.

50:50.24
Britty
Believe it’s possible and to never ever ever not believe it’s possible even when self-doubt kicks in. Um, the second thing would be that if you’re in a space or that’s a creative rat or that you’re starting out is just to start because I know that the loop of a creative with procrastination is real.

50:50.30
charukaarora
Yes.

51:08.90
charukaarora
Yes.

51:09.88
Britty
And the moment that you just start whether it’s ugly messy, horrible painful, um, unpleasant the starting will create at least a spark or a piece of momentum that will get something to move and that’s all you need to have happen is movement so that would probably be the 2 pieces of advice.

51:23.36
charukaarora
