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.

Wall Drawing (Part II)

My wall drawing has been slowly evolving with each new form.  I like that the composition is very organic; it is not predetermined but almost intuitive in where I place each individual shape.  This is how it looks at the moment.  The issue I have now, is when to stop? How do you know when a drawing is finished; it could have been complete with just one form?
