JKB Fletcher has once again agreed to be part of the Learning to Look series 2015-16. Fetcher came to speak to middle school classes in 2013 and he has kindly agreed to show new works and talk about his work to several groups of students in Lower and Upper school. Two of his works will be on display in the Hillside building until the end of October, ‘Flesh Side’ and ‘Flesh Black and White’ seen above. Fetcher will be giving an insight into how he was able to pursue his artistic career and how he has developed his own photorealistic techniques and subject matter.
‘Physically my painting is about creating form, depth and structure with less than one millimetre thick oil over the surface of a canvas or linen, developing a recognisable image with the use of colour. Once I’ve found the right model, chosen the right photo (out of hundreds I’ve taken), the painting itself takes (on average) one hundred hours to complete.’
Fletcher’s work is represented in galleries in London, New York, and Melbourne.
