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.

Curated by Juan Bolivar / Julia Alvarez

Press Release

This annual show showcases work from new artists working in a range of media. The show comprises two semi-independent exhibitions: Futura Bold and Futura Oblique, spanning two consecutive weeks. Part of the experimental nature of this year’s show lies in the decision to invite two guest curators, Juan Bolivar and Julia Alvarez, to negotiate relationships between what will inevitably be a diverse selection of works.

The choice of external curators reflects a desire to encourage an open dialogue between subject and media, whether painting, film, installation, drawing, animation, or sound, while exposing the work to wider critical and artistic contexts.

Wimbledon College of Art’s MA Fine Art interim show falls at an exciting stage of the MA course. The artists involved take this as an opportunity to showcase their evolving ideas ahead of their final exhibition in September 2011. The show provides an opportunity for visitors to engage with the new work and fresh ideas of a dynamic group of emerging young artists.

Exhibition 1 - 3rd March - 6th March

Exhibition 2 - 10th March - 13th March

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
