Graft Ladder 2020

Ladders of different forms have regularly made an appearance in Jo Lathwood’s practice as she sees them as a symbol of change, desire and aspiration. During the Covid-19 lockdown, Lathwood spent time creating a series of intricate paintings representing imaginary and realistic ladders. These ladders represent the quintessential tools to get over something, to conquer obstacles and shift a view point. A suitable mantra for this point in history. Graft Ladder consolidates these ideas, and relates to the physical Graft Ladder sculpture that Lathwood installed in the corner of Hestercombe’s apple and walnut orchard in September 2020.

About Jo Lathwood

Lathwood was the first resident artist at Hestercombe in 2014-15. She makes sculptures and large scale installations which regularly respond to a particular site, event, material or process. Recurring themes within her practice are transitions, journeys, viewpoints, and illusion.

Her portfolio varies greatly in form, scale, context and method of production, encompassing: temporary and permanent public art, exhibitions curated for galleries and heritage sites (often as the outcome of an artist residency) and studio-based work.
