Brendan Fletcher works as an artist and writer. Fletcher creates vacuum formed plastic wall reliefs - for gallery and site-specific projects - that draw upon the history and visual language of abstract painting. The work conflates an abstract icon and a commercial logo to explore ideas surrounding contemporary devotion. Recent exhibitions include, Nice to Meet You, Mark Moore Gallery, Santa Monica, California, (November 2005), Terrain: Contemporary British Abstraction, Museum of Non Conformist Art, St Petersburg, 9 September 2004), and Chorus a site specific installation/soundscape for Gorton Monastery, Manchester in collaboration with American composer Kevin Malone, (May 2004). His work derives from an abstract painting practice and his principal interests lies, in the 'expanded field' of contemporary abstract painting. Fletcher also writes regularly for art periodicals including Contemporary (formerly CVA) and AN. He has contributed features, reviews and previews: most recently AN September 2009. He has also contributed to the BBC Radio 4's flagship arts programme Front Row, (9 May 2005). Fletcher has curated exhibitions projects for Huddersfield Art Gallery, and the Mart Network and he is one of the eight founder members of the Mart Network.
