Lifelines

Latchford’s recent work, whilst being explorations of her painterly concerns with colour, light, paint and composition, is a commentary on hidden social isolation often experienced within contemporary society. The human figure continues to be a constant within her practice, and this new work, the ‘Lifelines’ series, sees her introduce the the idea of place with identity and memory - which present as a feeling of nostalgia, history and longing. 

A pink line has become a recurring motif within this new body of work, swaddling figures and places - protective rather than oppressive.
