Rosa Luetchford is a painter, born in 1995 and raised in Kent, England.
Painting the women in Luetchford's world is a way of immortalising them. Capturing the women she crosses paths with who make an imprint on her life. Painting women is a way to celebrate and give permanence to them. The idea of women as a muse for the source of creative inspiration is one that has been previously linked/associated/ connected to serving the ‘greatness of a man’. The focus upon their bodies is different. To the focus upon the faces, the imitative portrayal of the face is structured and controlled, the use of paint for the rest of space/body is abstracted and unconstrained. The paint becomes the creator of the narrative. Each portrait contributes to the collection of women she has painted.
