“Into the Woods”

A series of nineteen small, illustrative works in acrylic on square canvases by Nicolette Leigh Yates

This series is inspired by childhood ideas and experiences. Specifically my memories of walking to my neighbor's house along a mowed pathway, turning left to pass the tobacco fields and heading into the woods where there was a clearing. The first time I made this journey felt epic. The discovery of the clearing in the woods was transcendental. I stood there in awe for what felt like forever. The story in my head would evolve each time I made this trek.

Currently on view at Blue Ghost Brewing near the Asheville Airport in Fletcher, N.C. until August 2017
