Sammi Fletcher's research investigates the traumatized female gaze through process-based media. Exploring concepts of memory through figuration in paint. Her surfaces are often abraded, figures unearthed like forgotten memories, or vanished entirely. Her luminous paintings evoke unease through gesture and often violent treatment of surface.
Sammi is a figurative artist predominately working in oil paint and print. Research plays a large part within her deeply considered practice. She revels in the materiality of paint. Each element of her work holds part of the narrative, from surface to direction of line, from brush to the medium employed. She uses palette as signifier in all she does.
