One month on and the studio is starting to look more exciting and lived in with drawings / paintings and my collection of objects, materials and preparatory research / paint samples adorn the walls and surfaces. I'm having the best time experimenting and getting back to work.
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.
