Felicity Meachem is a contemporary British artist, born in Norfolk 1996. Shortly after completing her BA in Fine Art Painting at the University of Brighton in 2018, she has moved to pursue her practice, now based at AWOL Studios in Manchester. She has since been awarded Runner Up of the Graduate Art prize 2018 for her painting ‘I’m Alright, Hiding Tonight', she has volunteered as PR and Social Media Coordinator for Manifest Arts Festival 2019 and has most recently exhibited selected works in The Manchester Open exhibition 2020 at HOME.
Burgeoning with an overload of pattern, Meachem's work celebrates the use of the decorative within contemporary Fine Art Painting. While pattern can still signify twee, kitsch, and the feminine, she believes that with the right use of decoration in painting it can be evocative and empowering. The work depicts dreamscapes with figures suspended in an indefinite psychedelic space. Images sourced or appropriated from different cultures defines the subject matter in her paintings, from Japanese Kimonos, African Dutch wax prints to Ancient Paracas textiles. Through a painterly fusion of pattern, she aspires to create a utopian world where all cultures can live in harmony and wishes to investigate the complex internationalism of pattern work, which she strongly believes is a cultural fabric that overlaps.
