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.

Cut-outs: Nishino-Shima

I have been experimenting with cutouts, the creation of negative space, and the idea of conveying something that has disappeared, been lost,or  has dissolved from view.  Whether it is something visible like land or space, or whether it is something more elusive and ephemeral like a previous form. 

I want to work out how to display them . So far I have tried them sequentially, but I would like to try something on a larger scale and have them infringing on each other and creating windows and spaces.
