Latifah Stranack

Born to parents from the East and the West, Latifah has always been fascinated by cultural hybridity and how this has shaped her senses, and the lens through which she experiences the world. In pursuit of a fleeting moment, she contextualises and reframes the presence and absence of family members and belongings. Partially revealed, Latifah attempts to collapse her present reality and bring the past to life, forever layered in washes of paint, helping her work through subconscious emotions and fears. The work she is compelled to create, enables and empowers her to make sense of who she is.
