About Daniel Fletcher

Daniel Fletcher is a visual artist currently living and working in London. He splits his time between working in his studio and running Foolscap Editions. Foolscap Editions is a self started, independent publisher that works in close collaboration with emerging artists to release books and special editions. Fletcher has exhibited his work in London and Los Angeles and participated in residencies at the University of the Arts London and Peckham Print Studio.

STATEMENT

Fletcher’s work is rooted in a desire to express emotion and feeling through the personification of marks and form, constructing animate facial expressions disguised beneath a playful language of the everyday. The artist’s process begins with extensive exploration of composition and color. Working primarily on canvas or paper, his gradual, precise layering pushes the boundaries of silk screen techniques to convey a playful spirit. Drawing on a universal tendency to publicize one’s life, and the insecurities that follow, Fletcher investigates our ability to express emotions through the use of comic icons. Working with the most stripped back components and features of the human face, animate expressions are obscured beneath a façade of soft imagery. The concealment itself mirrors our ability to project visions of happiness through a new visual language.
