The following extract has been taken from the website of the Protected content
Doreen Fletcher’s atmospheric urban landscapes have only recently captured an audience, when the discovery of her paintings revealed a distinctive vision of the changing capital. For the first time, the Protected content will bring the majority of her work back under one roof, in the home of their making – the East End.
The works reveal the drastic changes of east London’s streets across just three decades, remembering the businesses long forgotten and the buildings that have since been knocked down. A superb colourist, she applies her rigorous technique to recording the drama of the city in compelling and authoritative images.
For twenty years Doreen Fletcher painted the streets of east London until discouraged by lack of recognition, she gave up in Protected content . Only a chance meeting with The Gentle Author of Spitalfields Life brought her painting to public attention in Protected content . For the first time, this retrospective reveals the full breadth of Doreen Fletcher’s achievement between Protected content 2004, showing the largest selection of her paintings together, and including many previously unseen pictures from private collections.
