Walking the Grand Thames Panorama w/ Artist in Residence Luke M Walker | DegreeArt.com The Original Online Art Gallery

Join Artist in Residence, Luke M Walker, for a 2 hour Panorama walk around the Grand Thames!

In 1843 engraver Henry Vizetelly produced a 14ft long panorama of the Thames, made looking from the South Bank towards the North, stretching from The Palace of Westminster to Wapping. Over the course of the next few years it was extended down to Deptford finally reaching 18 feet in length.

Luke M Walker is a London- based artist whose work explores his relationship with the city through walking, mapping, painting and drawing. Much of his practice has evolved along the banks of the River Thames where he has lived and worked for much of his life. He is keen to share his passion and engagement with this wild, urban landscape and how he has documented its development and the ebbs and flows of the city.

Luke will lead a walk from Bankside Hotel, along the river to look at how the river has changed over the past 180 years, showing some of his favourite and often overlooked spots and discussing other artists who've painted the river;Turner, Monet, Whistler as well as more contemporary depictions and studies by Roni Horn and Chloe Dewe whose photographic works capture the ever changing currents and shores of the Thames. Weather dependent on the length and duration of the walk - starting and finishing at Bankside.
