London-based artist Fletcher Prentice has been spending more time in away from London, inspired by the variety of bird-life and wild-flowers, and so creating intricately layered flower-scapes, amidst which small birds are visible. In his loose, yet meticulous style, he has created a new series of work that perfectly expresses the tiny, shifting movements of the colurful feathered creatures.
‘When I paint I constantly strive to balance on the one hand my fascination with the object - using paint and enjoying the qualities of paint, breaking down and semi-abstracting the subject matter and surface - and on the other hand my desire to retain and capture the natural beauty of the subject, whether the human figure, an animal or a single pear.’
