As per Heidi: "Killing for Sport is part of a series of turn of the century vintage Valentines. It is a symbol of predatory love and seduction, consisting of a callous disregard for the other who is reeled in only to be cut free."


Heidi Taillefer's work is an original creative fusion of classical figurative painting, surrealism, contemporary realism, and mythology combined with popular figurative traditions ranging from victorian romanticism to science fiction. her artwork is consonant with some early 20th century surrealists, such as Max Ernst and Giorgio DeCirico.

Taillefer addresses eternal issues on the human condition borrowing from mythologies throughout different eras and cultures, through the lens and language of mechanism, mirroring the ubiquity of technological advancement in the world.

In her work she attempts to marry primordial human essence with the explosive expansion of the machine, as a new paradigm looms close on the horizon and promises a redefinition of what it means to be human.
