'In the medina' depicts a quiet day on a street in the medina in Marrakech. Locals walk past and acknowledge shop workers selling ceramics, rugs, silver and gold. Rugs and fabrics drape the ceiling, creating warm hues of pink and orange, as the sun casts through. Sky light shines through the fabrics onto the ground and reflects onto the gold and silver in the shop stalls. Charmaine creates a feeling of dry heat, dusty air, a stillness to the scene. Soft lilacs and magentas contrast with the bright pinks and oranges, giving the painting contrast and depth. Charmaine has kept the brush strokes loose and prominent, giving the impression of a quiet day in the medina.

Charmaine Chaudry artist with Wychwood Art. Charmaine’s artwork largely stems from fascination with identity and “the exotic”. Charmaine’s mixed-race English and Pakistani identity is inherent to her work as she feels a pull towards both classically English nostalgic scenes, as well as towards her paternal home of Pakistan, a place that is contrastingly warm and romantic but distant to her daily life. Charmaine plays with these themes of nostalgia, the exotic, and with her own relationship to idealised landscapes to create idealised dream-like scenes, evidenced by her vibrant colour palettes and impressionist bold brushstrokes. Her work fundamentally portrays the joy she finds in the outdoors. She depicts both nostalgic memories of spending endless days exploring her childhood garden, as well as a pull towards warm “exotic” places of her ancestors and her travels. Charmaine wants her audience to find a relatability and comfort in her artwork, whether that is rose-tinted memories, or idealised dreams.
