FELICITY MEACHEM

Felicity MeachEm is a recent graduate of Fine Art Painting at The University of Brighton and is now based in Manchester. Burgeoning with an overload of pattern, her work explores whether the decorative has a place within contemporary Fine Art Painting.While pattern can still signify twee, kitsch, the degenerate and the feminine, all of the old disparagements which critics imposed against it, with the right use of decoration MeachEm believes that in painting it can be evocative, multivalent, vigorous and empowering.

  Images sourced or appropriated from different cultures define the subject matter in her paintings. Such as Parisian tile patterns, Japanese Kimono and iconic African Dutch wax prints. This is in order to create a utopian world where all cultures can live in harmony.The work highlights the unavoidability of politics. She is aware that by contrasting and balancing different cultural iconographies, from western tonon-western patterning,it can be quite contentious. Especially with its relation to ‘Orientalism’. However, in opposition to this her work wishes to investigatethe complexity of cross-cultural fertilization. And shestrongly believes that internationalism of pattern work is a cultural fabric that overlaps. 

She has also been shortlisted for The Graduate Art Prize 2018 with her painting ‘I’m Alright, Hiding Tonight’.
