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.
