‘Yggdrasil’ is an Original Oil Painting on Wood Panel by contemporary artist Alexander Heaton. Finished with Gold Leaf, the piece is signed by the artist.

Alexander Heaton explores humankind’s most primeval interactions with nature through imaginative depictions of remote landscapes. A twenty-first century Romantic wanderer, Heaton blends filmic realism with fairytale vignettes, reaching into the depths of the imagination to create an aesthetic full of visual wonderment.


‘Yggdrasil’ applies the patterns and shapes of the natural world to create a composition of optical depth and complexity. Interlaced triangles, symboling the craggy mountain range, are cast in animal print and wood grain, all in fiery shades of black and burnt-orange for a beautiful dichotomy between art and the natural world.

About The Artist - Alexander Heaton


Central Saint Martins graduate Alexander Heaton explores humankind’s most primeval interactions with nature through imaginative depictions of remote landscapes. Drawing on his own experience as a mountaineer, Heaton casts himself as “the lonely figure lured by mountains, dark forests, alpine skies and forbidding ravines.”


His paintings reach into the depths of the imagination to capture a sense of the spiritual and the divine - those qualities long associated with awe-inspiring natural monuments. A twenty-first century Romantic wanderer, Heaton blends filmic realism with fairytale vignettes, to create an aesthetic full of visual wonderment. Yet, like all great fairytales, the sinister is never far from the surface of Heaton’s paintings: a sense of desolation and abandonment haunts the dark forests and crumbling glaciers in these unsentimental and complex works of art.

Quietly plaintive, Heaton’s paintings seem to lament our very human mortality, and seek to find beauty in the here-and-now, the passing ephemerality of life, and an escape from urban routine, back into the powerful natural world around us.
