Graham Fletcher’s work visually communicates a Postcolonial discourse, exploring cross-cultural relationships between Western and non-Western peoples. His practice plays with preconceived notions of the coloniser versus the colonised, and the observer versus the observed.
Graham Fletcher completed a Doctorate of Fine Arts at Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland in 2010. Since 1997, he has exhibited throughout New Zealand and abroad, including in Future Primitive at Heide Museum of Modern Art (2013) and the 7th Australia Pacific Triennial at Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (2012).
Fletcher’s work is held in major collections including at the National Gallery of Victoria, Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, University of Auckland, Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki and Te Papa Tongarewa Museum of New Zealand.
