Summer in Wimbledon – Christina Kim-Symes, Wimbledon College of Arts
Oil on canvas
30 x 40cm
My paintings combine the real with enhanced and imaginary elements by using bold, amplified colours and contrasting tonal values. I strive to stimulate the viewers’ awareness of their own environment, specifically their engagement with nature. In doing this, I reflect upon my own feelings of liberation when experiencing nature as a form of escapism and solitude. By incorporating silhouettes of anonymous, solitary figures facing away from the viewer, I aim to generate mystery and curiosity, and direct the focus towards the figure’s relationship with its surroundings.
