Latifah A. Stranack


Artist Latifah A. Stranack pursues through her poetic and evocative paintings, her cultural identity, memories, the absence of loved ones, rituals and connections. She also aims to delve into understanding the dynamics of exile and migration, belonging and the notion of home through her art. Her self portraits, depicting everyday life, and objects such as coffee pots which are metaphors for family, painting with the colour blue, reminiscent of ancient cultures, mixed with modern elements and her autobiographical brushstrokes, bring forth an element of artistic hybridity within her subject matter. Latifah A. Stranack paintings feel serene, yet filled with emotion, a sense of searching for answers to the questions she poses through her art, and contentment and warmth amongst familiar people or objects. Latifah A. Stranack art is touching and feels true to what the artist's heart wants to relay.
