Oonagh Latchford is an artist originally from Dalkey in Dublin but now living and working in Wexford. Her painting practice explores the depiction of light and in particular, the effects of high contrast and over saturation produced both by strong sunlight and by artificial lighting at night. Her recent work is inspired by a curiosity with Bokeh photography.
By incorporating figurative elements into these investigations with light, Latchford continues to develop work in an area that has been the main subject of her recent practice. Oonagh Latchford graduated from Wexford Campus School of Art and Design, Carlow IT, with a BA (Hons) in Art. Her work has been featured in Studentzine, an online publication for contemporary art and her writing has been published in Paper Visual Art Journal. Her paintings are in the collections of Wexford VEC, IT Carlow and in many private collections.
Oonagh works with The Wexford Arts Centre facilitating both adult and children's workshops and is on the current panel of artists with Wexford County Council's Artist in the Community Scheme.
