Born in Norfolk in 1972, Tom works predominately as a painter using oil or acrylic. He is self-taught and has now been exhibiting and selling work for over 20 years. Tom loves to paint the large skies that are seen over the beaches of Norfolk and Suffolk. In particular he likes to paint on big canvases which allow as much sky to be seen as possible, as well as showing the wide and beautiful beaches that stretch along the East Anglian coast.
In recent years Tom has also developed smaller paintings looking at landscapes and figures, particularly those working on and around the sea. Tom has had many exhibitions over the years, both locally and further afield. He exhibits work permanently in galleries in East Anglia.
He is a member of the East Anglian Group of Marine Artists (EAGMA) which is a group regarded for their marine and nautical art in paintings.
Fletcher's work is a celebration of the natural world, but also a celebration of paint itself. Nature's exuberant characters and colours as seen in exotic bird-life inspire him, while more recently he has been drawn to the more domestic beauty of the birds and plants in his own rural garden.
Paint is fascinating through its textures, its colours, its freedom and looseness. His work explores the 'object' of paint as much as it explores the 'subject' of nature.
'Fletcher Prentice's paintings are a wonderful display of fluidity and confidendence with oil combined with a meticulous eye for detail. He is interested in shape, colour and the natural world along with the material qualities of paint, enjoying ts texture as he uses it to build form. His paintings often take on two contrasting themes - one is still life, such as with cutlery or crockery, laid out neatly in grids, the other more prominent is bird and plant life. These paintings are made up of tangled foliage, plumage and colour, his loose painting style describes the constantly shifting movement, nature at its best. His works are often described as reminiscent of the classical murals from ancient Rome, large in scale, soft yet strong in colour and rich in detail '
The recent Dee Nickerson Exhibition was sold out. The excitement leading up to it was quite something with lots of people waiting for the 10am start time. The first hour was extremely hectic, luckily many people got their first choices. Sorry for those that were unlucky, we will keep you informed when Dee brings in fresh paintings.
