March 2021: Graham Fletcher, artist
Each month a member of our community is invited to browse our online collection and select six of their favourite artworks. Each ‘My Choice’ selection, together with personal responses to the works, will be available to view on the Sarjeant Gallery website for one month at a time. The April 2021 My Choice has been selected by Graham Fletcher and is available to view until 30 April 2021.
Artist Graham Fletcher is currently residing in Whanganui as the artist-in-residence at Tylee Cottage from February – June 2021. Fletcher has exhibited nationally and internationally, lives in Dunedin and is Principal Lecturer at the Dunedin School of Art. He has been a practicing artist since 1997 and his work to date as a New Zealand born Samoan has explored complex cultural issues within a post‐colonial context. These ideas formed the basis for further research and in February 2010 he completed his Doctorate of Fine Arts at The University of Auckland.
