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 finds 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.
ART5 Gallery is a strong supporter of Heidi’s work in England, having her as a resident artist since 2019. We are thrilled to be hosting her show entitled Voices in the Field. The exhibition is free and will run from Thursday September 5th until the 11th. Meet the artist on September 7th [ 2 pm to 6 pm].
