Fletcher Andersen Fletcher Andersen "Angels See In Sepia"
"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." Arthur C Clake
Based on the thematic muse of Wim Wenders seminal movie Der Himmel über Berlin ("Wings Of Desire"), Fletcher Andersen brings his second solo show, Angels See In Sepia, to Melbournes Rancho Notorious Gallery. Having produced a unique collection of portraiture, Fletcher delves into a combination of influences that have driven his creative passions for over twenty years - science fiction, arthouse films, street art and technology.Combining an inimitable illustrative style with visages of natural beauty, the images within ASIS depict returned angels of the Singularity, and their restoration to mortality after having relinquished their transhuman, digital heaven. From a universe of plenty, to a world of raw, unedited emotion, they are freed from the “shackles of immortality” to face a long forgotten, "natural" world; one far removed from of their solipsistic experiences...
Sounds very intriguing, can't wait to see!
