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.

Charting Sea Ice Concentration Levels of Antarctica
I have been working on a new series of drawings charting the changes of Antarctica from 31/12/2010 - 27/03/2011. I want to look at the impact of climate change on the topography of Antarctica. These series of drawings have been drawn from an animation from the media.
