This exhibition of vibrant paintings sees Latchford and Breatnagh exhibit together for the first time. Breatnagh, working with both traditional and non-traditional materials explores the natural environment. Latchford’s work, predominately figurative, explores the idea of place in relation to identity and memory. The practice of both artists are concerned with the painterly aspects of colour, shape, and light, and their lush painting surfaces of bold brush strokes and intuitive mark-making contest to this. Each sees their role as that of the visual storyteller, and their artworks, rich in colour and economical in detail, act as catalysts for the viewer to delve into their own memory banks.
Both artists’ practices are informed by a keen interest in photography. Latchford uses her treasure trove of new and old family photographs as source material. Breatnagh, in addition, takes inspiration from poetry and borrows elements from collage, resulting in paintings that have a sculptural element.

This is Jacobsz’s return to the Presentation Arts Centre, after her first solo exhibition of work in 2016, ‘Episodic Memory’ Caroline continued to engage with her practice through the medium of textile. This new body of work is a continuation of themes explored in ‘Episodic Memories’ and documents the process of a growing concept. ‘Where do We Begin’ is an exhibition about growth. A celebration of the uniqueness of every human being, life and cell, intertwined in the story of life and memories using materials such as Thread, human hair and old bed sheets to tell the story of conception, birth and maturity Jacobsz incorporates drawing, mixed media and sculptures of DNA, cells, seeds and blossoms ask at what point does life begin?
