Fletcher Sibthorp - Nothing gold can stay

A British artist born in London, England in 1967 Fletcher Sibthorp has essentially worked as a full-time artist for the past twenty years, producing figurative paintings; predominantly, large-scale canvases, mostly depicting the concept of movement and its effect on the human form, which culminated with exhibitions in London between 1992 and 1995, where approached by Sadlers Wells, he produced paintings with a narrative more specifically drawn into the energy of the dance. Recently however, Fletcher has become more interested in the figure alone; its subtleties and the more infinite expressionism it offers, creatively from a motionless and more abstract “background” to a more “interpretatively” spiritual depth.
