Interview of Sonia Roy in Digital Arts Magazine

Sonia Roy – Eplores Dreamscapes

There’s a dreamlike, allegorical quality to Canadian artist Sonia Roy’s work: vintage portraits are cast into enigmatic landscapes, and watched over by birds and foxes. They are highly evocative: hinting at emotionally charged, half-forgotten tales.


“Each of my pieces start with the characters. They are the narrators of my stories,” she explains. “Their expression and pose are very important to me.” In her images, 1950s pin-up girls beam coquettishly, and Edwardian children solemnly gaze on, surrounded by strange industrial landscapes and twisting branches.

Nexus magazine

A complex and unique relation which is born between the Man and the Robot, without competition but with intelligence and beauty. That is what Sonia Roy managed to express for the Nexus magazine cover in her creation which honors and makes a reference obviously to the work " The Creation of Adam " of Michel-angel.

Sonia Roy did two vintage collage illustrations for the article: Sight Unseen published in the April issue of the Rearder's Digest Magazine. One of the collage illustrations shows a portrait of Helen Keller, a famous American writer who lived deaf-mute and blind. The article is an extract of one of her publication and put the emphasis on the capacity to enjoy the beauty of the world through one of the 5 senses: the sight. The author also wrote what she would do if she was given the ability to see during three days.

Culte(s) Lifestyle Magazine

Sonia Roy conceives an olfactory map in her vintage collage style for an article about perfume concept stores featured in French Culte(s) Lifestyle Magazine. Those new boutiques are an interesting alternative to the impersonal perfumeries' alleys or to pick up a perfume in a designer shop, which sometimes can be intimidating. The article points out many addresses in Paris, namely the Jovoy, the Labo, Nose and Sens Unique, Ombres Portées (in Lille) and Les senteurs (London).
