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.

Saatchi Gallery

A mountain of speakers surrounding a piano.  Vibrations of sound were played which could be felt underfoot as you walked around the exhibit.


This exhibit filled a room of black geometric structures forming a web.


The dials of the 24 individual clocks would turn once every minute to tell the time as above.  I want one.
