Fletcher Prentice is one of our most admired gallery artists and a new collection of his works forms part of ESCAPE, our Summer Exhibition 2017. A prominent theme in his work is bird and plant life, represented as layered and tangled foliage, plumage and colour. His loose painting style is often described as reminiscent of the classical murals from ancient Rome, large in scale, soft yet strong in colour and rich in detail. We had a chat with Fletcher recently to talk about his practice:
"Painting is a journey and I am always learning how to use paint, hopefully in a better way, and how to observe the subject and how to express it with painted marks."
