Heidi Taillefer

Heidi Taillefer’s work is a fusion of classical figurative painting, surrealism, contemporary realism, and mythology.  Taillefer’s techniques and themes range from traditional Victorian romanticism, to science fiction.

Through her work, Taillefer addresses eternal issues of the human condition, borrowing from mythologies throughout different eras and cultures, and attempts to marry primordial human essence with the explosive expansion of the machine.  On the horizon, Taillefer sees a new paradigm looming — one that promises a redefinition of what it means to be human.

Taillefer’s work is included in notable collections including the Atelier 34zero Museum (Brussels, Belgium), the McAllen International Museum of Art and Science (McAllen, TX), Cirque du Soleil (Montreal, Quebec), Martin Sanders (board of directors of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art), and Morgan Spurlock (star and director of the documentary “Supersize Me”).
