Night Letters is a new series of intimately scaled oil paintings by Heidi Yardley.
The work forges a romantic and mysterious link between the female figure and evening landscapes. Both exist in a liminal, erotic space, as if somewhere between waking and sleeping. Moonlight is seductive as it reflects off subterranean waters; a place where desire and awe are tempered with the uncertainty of the unknown.
