The work of Australian artist Kayleigh Heydon creates explorative abstract paintings of the human form.
In her series, "The Pleasure is All Mine," Heydon has placed her work within a palette of flesh tones that interact on the surface of each painting. Their shapes are soft and rounded, pushing against each other tightly within their frames and creating a sense of pressure and energy. She repeats motifs throughout the series, offering us a glimpse of a hand or profile of a face, but not divulging the entire scene. These paintings are tantalizing and elusive, with simple compositions letting our imaginations take the lead.
Kayleigh Heydon has created a body of work poetically capturing intimate moments and human connection. We love how, through her abstraction, she is able to achieve the illusion of body parts fitting together like soul-mate puzzle pieces.
