Heidi Langridge is a largely self-taught artist, based in Brighton. In 2002 she co-founded the independent art gallery ‘Ruby Pier’ in Brighton’s Artist Quarter and then in 2010 moved to her current space called Wren Studio. This change afforded her a platform to develop her paintings in line with her own authentic style.
Heidi’s work has always had a sense of minimalism but in recent years she has been exploring a duality of her signature minimalism with a more vivid and colourful palette, giving a sense of fullness and abundance.
She find birds especially beautiful and they tend to take centre-stage in either empty spaces or surrounded by an exuberance of over-ripened flowers, blossom and colour where they can become integrated into the chaos. The backgrounds are highly suggestive and painted with large brushstrokes of contrasting tones so that there is a balance of colour and form offering a structure for the birds to sit in.
