Radessa Roy

Drawing from personal experiences as a second-generation migrant, my work Bust considers culture, identity, and notions of authenticity. I practice in a range of media including painting, textiles, assemblage and sculpture, preferring to use unconventional materials and domestic objects that decay or transform through time. Through my works I am interested in creating experiences that may be tense, confronting, grotesque but also playfully contradictory.
