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.

Code Paintings

These works were similar to the Code Drawing Series in that the same process of drawing was used.  However, instead of drawing on canvas, these pieces were created using egg tempera paint on a chalk ground (on board).  These three pieces were shown together at the Wimbledon MA Interim Show: Futura Bold/Futura Oblique at the Nunnery Gallery March 2011.
