The installation presents a selection of digital, mixed media and acrylic works. Both charging and alluring, whilst discovering the intangible through abstraction, portraiture and prose.
Roxanne has recurrently employed a palette of vibrant colours and expressive strokes, creating paintings with a penetrating gaze that engulfs a room. Her works entice you to spend time and reflect on their familiarity whether on canvas, wood or clothing. Roxanne celebrates predominantly black features, mirroring her Jamaican heritage and navigating identity and self-worth. This multifaceted narrative is an ongoing component of her portraits, contributing to the perception and value of ‘blackness’ and the powerful lens of ‘other’.
Her previous achievements have focused on the collaborative aspects of her practice including curating group shows, cultural pop ups and interdisciplinary live art events ‘Merging Inks’ featured in Hunger Magazine (2013) exhibited at Richmix (2012-2016), The Vaults London (2016) and internationally. In March 2019 she was invited to Penang, Malaysia where she completed an art residency and exhibition titled Selfie Love. Currently she is Artist in Residence in East London’s Toynbee hall.
Roxanne will be transforming the Dear Alice speakeasy downstairs in the Library Members club, Central London for 3 days only. The opening will be an evening shifting energy through live music, spoken word, performances and cocktails designed to spread good vibes.
