From London with Love 2010-Original Frame INCLOUDED
This watercolour and ink masterpiece is featured in Bloomsbury's 2011 publication, showcasing the artist's sketchbook (Note 1).
Created en plein air, Shizico Yi painted this piece in front of the iconic St Pancras Station, with a view from Euston Road. The composition also encompasses the grandeur of the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, a Gothic Revival gem dating back to 1873. This historic structure not only captures the essence of the city but also captivates the imagination of visitors worldwide. For Shizico Yi, it holds a significance as the place where she bid farewell to her family embarking on the Eurostar journey to Europe.
Within Shizico's sensitive line drawings, a wave of nostalgic and sentimental emotions unfolds. The majestic red bricks, skilfully depicted, serve as a perfect homage to the building's charm and historical significance. Through her artistic lens, Shizico Yi encapsulates both the tangible and emotional aspects of this architectural landmark of London; against her distinctive collaged paper backdrop, Shizico Yi employs her signature drawing style to capture the essence of time and memory within the landscape.
The original frame (with glass at front to protect the paper) is included, a free gift to come with.
