Yardley’s latest body of work depicts figures that appear to be from a different time and place. Never shy of the esoteric within her work, Yardley pushes her usual muted colour palette into a more psychedelic realm with intense shades of indigo and crimson. The mind-broadening aspirations of the counter-cultural movement of the 1960’s is referenced with suggestions of heightened states, ritual, flowers, LSD trips et al. Yardley is interested in what motivates the desire to tap into that which is outside of ordinary experience. Paired with these works are luminous and evocative land and seascapes, at times broken up by forms of sacred geometry. In this work she explores her ongoing interest in the human relationship to the natural world.
