Original painting in oil and acrylic on board.

"This series was looking at colour and depth as well as painterly effects; the neon pink base layer should fade into the background, but it doesn't - it fights with your eyes to come forward. The subject matter explores loneliness and sense of belonging."

Helen Latham

Helen Latham’s paintings focus on the 21st-century self – how do we relate to each other in a culture saturated by superficiality? Latham imbues her paintings with emotion through the careful use of colour and form. Art, as Latham shows, has a peculiar power to provoke emotion and it is what critic Clive Bell, in 1914, explained is the “aesthetic emotion”, the essential difference between art and all other objects. In Latham’s imagery, colour is used to affect an emotional response, and spatial devices are used to evoke a sense of belonging or alienation in the image’s narrative. In turn, each painting conjures memory to invoke empathy and contemplation of the self in direct relation to the other.
