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.

Observational Drawing

I've set myself an observational sketchbook project to get back into technical drawing. I want to spend more time focusing on the quality of line and the process of drawing. 

I thought that by setting myself an undefined project, I would have the freedom to create more expressive drawings and have the space to be more free with my mark-making. 

I don't see this as a project that will change my work, or set a precedent for a new series if works. Instead this is a project that will allow me to experiment and see my work from another perspective. 

In the photographs below I did a few drawings outside in the park. It's nice to get out if the studio and create art for the sake of creating. A firm of pure drawing, without intent or purpose.
