Down the cobbled road to Turl Street, the artist depicts a cold wintery afternoon, looking out onto Christmas shoppers and the quaint stationary shop Scriptum. The sun has just set, leaving behind delicate lilacs in the sky. The light from the street lamp and the inside of the shop reflects onto the pavement. This old street seems to glow, excited for Christmas soon approaching.

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.
