ABOUT ROXY & KIDS´ART (children´s artwork metamorphosis)
There is little time for children to play, to dream, to think. We are parents of overscheduled and overstressed kids. Children need and deserve, unfortunately, more than ever ample art-treatment. Over the years, I have discovered more from my child about childhood, life, learning, art and love, than from any other source.
"Childhood is for preparation. It's not a performance."
ROXY & KIDS´ART allows time for play, that is, unstructured play. Our art workshops de-stress the children and free up some downtime.
I've been privileged to create art with many children. The kids have taught me so much, invaluable lessons such as appreciation for the present moment and how to be a better listener.
This experience helps me stay still, quiet, focused and attentive when observing children´s art details. Together with Chris Silberer, German novellist & copywriter, we created a new, unusual form of art. We inspire kids between 2 and 11 years old to scribble, doodle and paint the music and the sounds they love. We develop, transform those artworks, adding our curiosity and fantasy, while searching the child´s message in there. We try to connect with their emotions and help them express feelings that they have difficulty expressing otherwise.
The "completed" artworks contain our drawings integrated on top of the so joyfully "delivered" creations, little poems, rhymes and short sentences that fit harmoniously in the composition. The lyric is inspired from creating and "dreaming" with the children, it sometimes reproduces their thoughts, their opinions and their comments. These unique artworks capture somehow what it is like to experience synesthesia.
I speak English, German, Greek, Romanian and Italian and I love our multilingual world. Communicating with kids of various origins is a great satisfaction and fulfillment. The results of this "colourful" dialog, of this unusual, distinguished manner of interaction are beautifully captured in our artworks.
The “roxygraphic” writing, which is unique to my particular artistic style completes the poetry of each artwork.
Enjoy the beautiful series of co-works ROXY & KIDS´ART (Artworks created by Roxana Ené, Chris Silberer and happy crowds of kids, with water colors & ROXYGRAPHY). They are the result of various art projects in Germany and Romania.
Kandinsky believed that colors provoke emotions. We believe that emotions provoke colors.
