Moody skies, broad horizons, barns, and quiet farmhouses make up Andy Fletcher’s plein air landscapes of the Midwest. His paintings evoke feelings of nostalgia as they celebrate the family farm and an older, more sustainable way of farming. There is great softness throughout his minimal compositions.
Fletcher earned a B.F.A. from Carroll College and taught art at Winona State University, University of Wisconsin –Milwaukee, the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, and Carroll College. He is now a full time artist and exhibits his paintings coast to coast.
“Things happen more slowly when I paint. It’s very personal and meditative. I remember my emotional reactions to things, and where I come from and who I am — it all shows up in the decisions of what I include and what I don’t.” – Andy Fletcher
