Kayleigh Heydon, Apply Pressure, Acrylic on Linen, 914 x 1219mm, Detail

In The Pleasure is All Mine, Kayleigh fills the canvas with a rich tapestry of shape and colour that interact to create a distinct sense of energy and joie de vivre. The work is abstract yet it possesses an engaging narrative quality that evokes a sense of heightened social interactions – enigmatic moments, chatter, glasses clinking, a certain sensuality.

‘There is symmetry in pleasure, pleasure you can keep.

Pay attention, this room is heavy. Your hands are making new forms, your gestures deliberate. Are you pressured to move like that, light or distance?

You’ve started keeping things to yourself.

A desire to apply pressure, a flower you can’t touch. You can arc through it if you like. When you’re in it you’re in it, feel how heated it is, the person next to you, look at their mouth. What colour is touching their skin?

This room is heavy, pleasure is complex, it loops.’

-Kayleigh Heydon
