Closely Observed Worlds
Paintings by 
Andrew Fitchett

Andrew Fitchett.jpg

I have been making paintings since leaving London in 1992. The composition and drawing skills I developed during my design and advertising career have a strong presence in my work. Whether I am working small or large, I find detail is unavoidable. Inspiration often comes from the atmosphere of a place. I am particularly drawn to moments of stillness and isolation, and it is these sensations that make a landscape interesting for me rather than any specific type of terrain. The painting that follows is a kind of enhanced memory that is developed in my studio working with oil on canvas from sketches made on location. Sometimes the work has a meaning beyond the obvious elements that make up the painting and connects with my wider experiences. 

My long-standing love of Crows is more folklore than ornithological, and they often make appearances in my paintings. I have recently been exploring the world of moths and butterflies. Close observation of their intricate wing patterns has inspired me to make a series of oversized paintings in celebration of their beauty. ​

My work is in private collections in UK, Holland, Germany, Norway, America and Canada and I have exhibited my work across the UK from Brighton to Edinburgh.
