About Roxie Ray
Southern California Painter
Roxie Ray’s paintings capture field workers laboring in rising heat, bathers languidly floating. The paintings are at once realistic depictions of everyday life and socio-political statements. The viewer is caught in ambiguous situations, observing faceless yet very human figures, anonymous, marginalized. Roxie notes that, for her, painting — like life — is not always an easy process and can be painful. She begins with an idea that moves into motion with a philosophical undercurrent, then reaches into color and contrast, achieving atmosphere in her work. Roxie is a proud founding member of Studio Channel Islands Art Center located in Camarillo, CA.
