Kensington Palace to Marble Arch
52cm x 42cm
Acrylic and oil pastel on canvas
This particular piece is a painting that captures my memories of a walk through Hyde Park, starting at Kensington Palace and finishing at Marble Arch. It was a spring morning in early March, purple and yellow crocuses had broken through the soft ground, Parakeets where chattering away, people were out and about enjoying the first signs of spring, and the air smelt fresh. My walk took me past the Royal Albert Hall, the Princess Diana memorial and the Serpentine lido, and all the while I was taking in the smells, sounds, and colours with the intention of creating a visual representation of this walk. My own experience of synesthesia has helped inform the colours in this piece, and I have used mark making to represent key sounds like the thrum of a car engine, or muffled chitter chatter. With the help of an audio recording, I created this piece from memory. Rather than it being an accurate mapping of my walk, it is very much a personal interpretation of my sensory experience.
