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.

Brief Art Exhibition Drawings 15.02.2012

My work is being shown at Brief Art in February 2012.  This exhibition is raising awareness and funds for St. Margaret's Hospice.  The proceeds of all sold work will be donated to the hospice.  The two drawings below are of my featured work in progress as I prepare to submit my work for the show.  One image is of the recent floods in NewJersey in October 2012, and one is of the beautifully frightening dust plumes occurring off the coast of Alaska.
