Heidi Yardley is a Melbourne based artist working predominantly in the fields of painting and drawing. Her work explores a dark subterranean world that is familiar yet cloaked in mystery. She has recently explored collage as source material for her paintings, creating a sense of tension and displacement within the work. Drawing from history, memory and popular culture these images become a combination of remembrances and re-imagined worlds. Her images of the figure allude to heightened states of being; desire, loss, pain and ecstasy. Many images are sourced from the past (often the 1960’s and 70’s) and a sense of nostalgia is inherent in the work. The viewer is left to draw their own conclusions when faced with these unresolved yet suggestive narratives.
