Jennifer Letchet Paintings

My work explores fundamental elements of painting, the relationship between colour and line. I intend my paintings to affect the viewer optically with the illusion of shapes moving and receding. Colour theory is very important to my work. I use specific hues to symbolise ideas or emotions. The contained shapes on canvases seem more like objects than lines. My recent work explores natural and man-made disasters and the impact this has on our environment. I want to record the changing landscape through simplified shapes and colours.

Morden Hall Park

I have been continuously using photography, not with a concise idea of why, but I want to take the time to explore it and to see if it will feed into my work.  I found these interesting forms in Morden Hall Park, a National Trust maintained park and wetlands.  Their physicality and intricate linear forms attracted me.  It was a wet day, so colours were exuberant and vibrant.
