Description

Fondly remembering the place and time in her life when she created this vibrant work, Ines Szamrey recalls, “This was the first large painting I did after a 2-year maternity gap in my career. My work has now changed to representing ‘big scenes’ in an attempt to ‘let everybody know that I am back on track.’ Having previously worked in smaller sizes, this canvas shows something that could be an important shift in my direction.


This is the internal construction of my favorite place, a local park offering stunning beauty that I’ve visited almost every day since my son was born. I used strong dark brush stokes both with and without solid color infill. There is an abundance of blue and green. Delightful.”

Ines Szamrey

FROM ENGLAND

Ines Szamrey was born in Córdoba, Argentina and has lived and worked in London since 2005. According to Ines, “Art is the most intimate form of self expression, and a way to connect with others on a deeper level than anything else. It is one of the most fulfilling things you can do as a conscious and creative person. I find it a driving force in my life. I concentrate on achieving an image capable of triggering a true emotion that is detached from narrative and is purely visual.

My paintings are composed mostly of highly saturated color fields that suggest imaginary scenes like domestic still-lives or Arcadian landscapes. My ideas are driven by color. Color is so resistant to theory that I find it is the real subject of my paintings. Color as the subject allows me to dilute representation. I also create art based on the stimuli I find in children’s art. Children’s art work is based on subjective interpretations emphasizing emotional relationships to the external world as it relates to them, that fascinates me and I wish I could draw like a child again!

Take a Stroll in a Charming Village

Although you’d be doing a great injustice to yourself by making a trip to the U.K. and not spending adequate time in the bustling, fashionable, vibrant capital city of London, there is just as much to be said for England’s countryside, with the charming hamlets and cozy villages that are off the beaten path. One such village that really stole our hearts during a journey through England was Stadhampton, in Oxfordshire. An ideal place to visit if you’re looking for a relaxing, quiet day trip by car from London..

This charming village provides a convenient home base for touring the many options in the area, including the Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. Be sure to check the schedule for the Dorchester Abbey in Wallingford to attend a concert at this historic site. Numerous museums surround the countryside including the Pitt Rivers Museum at the University of Oxford with its large array of archaeological and anthropological finds. And for car enthusiasts, do not forget to take a tour of the Mini Cooper plant in Oxford. And lastly do not miss driving by the old thatched bakery in Stadhampton that dates to 1658 and remained in operation until 1914. If the U.K. is in your upcoming travel plans, we would be pleased to suggest a hotel that ranks very high on our list, right in the heart of Stadhampton.

Double-Decker Red Bus - "Icon" or Not?

London’s double decker red buses are world famous. There is however some debate in England as to whether they should be considered an “icon”. Unfortunately, the last of the Routemaster red buses were taken out of service in England at the end of 2005.

Since then many of these famous buses have appeared in various places and have been converted into tour buses or party buses, so you will occasionally see them on the road…or in this particular case as a reception area for a unique, delightful hotel outside of London.
