Paintings by Heidi Woodhead

Handmark 2016 Emerging Artist

About

Heidi’s paintings  explore themes of love and lies, creation and nature, life and decay.  She is inspired by Dutch botanical and Vanitas paintings of the 17th century-  their lushness, playfulness, symbolism and sense of discovery – but always with a modern touch of whimsy.

Artist

“In my paintings I explore themes of love and lies, creation and nature, life and decay. I ask, but do not quite answer, the existential questions that drive me to create. Eleven years spent working as a forensic crime scene examiner has given me an eye for detail and an appreciation for the fleeting nature of beauty. I aim to capture the exquisite when I paint and celebrate the little joys but I don’t shy away from the darkness, I embrace it, utilising it as a contrast to the colour and the light.

I am inspired by botanical and Vanitas paintings of the 17th century; their lushness, playfulness, symbolism and sense of discovery. In some ways my paintings serve as a modern Vanitas but always with a touch of whimsy.” – Heidi Woodhead
