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.

Wimbledon MA Graduate Show 05.09.11

Here are some photographs of my final work from the MA show.  I shared an exhibition space with 4 other artists and we curated the space together to ensure the final product was a fluid and composed exhibition.  All of our work focused on space and place, and so there were conceptual and theoretical links connecting our work together.  My work focused on changing topography and used egg tempera on chalk grounds.
