Meet the Artist // Roxy Richens

Roxy Richens is an Australian artist who works in various mediums such as charcoal drawing, performance video and band posters. During her Residency at GlogauAIR, she spent her time researching and exploring her fascination with the planet Venus.

In her project, Richens investigated scientific proposals to colonise Venus. During the residency, she developed a series of three large-scale charcoal drawings that represented these explorations. Richens manipulates and layers film stills which then become her reference for her drawings. In the Open Studios, she presented her tactile charcoal drawings which were brought to life by dramatic lighting in her studio. Richens currently lives in Berlin.
