      Michele Fletcher

      +Follow

      Michele Fletcher is an abstract painter whose works sway between landscape and memory, the seen and the unseen, and the scientific and the haptic. By creating sensual scenes of floral interactions, Michele presents a moving exploration of our relationship with the natural world. Her oil paintings, informed by nature but reliant on visual memory, bloom from layers of patterns and textures, reworked to give glimpses of biological forms entangled with circadian rhythms.

      Michele Fletcher’s Style and Practice

      Originally from Canada, Michele now lives and works in London. The artist studied at Goldsmiths (BA Hons Fine Art and Critical Theory) and Chelsea, graduating with an MA in 2007. Michele works with flowing, botanical forms. Her work straddles the threshold of the imagined and the scientific and is highly gestural and rhythmic. Michele captures how we are physically moved by our encounters with nature, breathing life and emotion into her undulating shapes. Forests of leaves, petals, and vines embrace, exhibiting almost human characteristics.

      Awards

      Michele received The Neville Burston Award for Painting (from Goldsmiths College) and won the inaugural Marmite Prize for Painting. She was also a Royal Overseas League Scholar at Hospitalfields via the Patrick Alan Fraser Trust, Scotland. Her painting Compost was a prize winner in the 2020 John Moores Painting Prize.
