London Waterways


Walking through London with an open heart I often stop in my tracks and stare, enraptured by the beauty of the relationship between man and nature. My recent body of work explores this relationship visually, treating both sides as equal. As the weather warms, I continue painting London scenes, adding to the collection weekly (unless I get bogged down in the art of webmastering–not my cup of tea). To see my new works fresh off my easel, I have a monthly newsletter:[link_popup id=’386′ link_text=’click here to sign up’ name=’Sign up for new art updates’]To see larger images click on any of the thumbnails:

The paintings above are for sale and can be viewed in either Petts Wood, Orpinton, South East London. If you have any questions please call me at +44 (0)7545685444 or drop me an email at info@zsuzsannapataki.com If you like my style and have a different project in mind, please do contact me. I accept commissions.

I see a history of people trying to brace the river with bridges and taking temporal ownerhip of the riverbed when the water recedes, a history repeatedly covered and slowly eroded by the tide. I love the harmony of how the Thames and its waterways so perfecly complement London life, carrying away the filth and steadily bearing the boatloads of people, quietly sloshing around man-built structures, fragmenting and playfully reflecting their own view of the city.   All images © 2014 Zsuzsanna Pataki.
