Burned Out Love

2016 acrylic ink on water color paper, 16" x 20" Anatomical hearts are significant in my life because my father is a cardiologist. He has always taught me about the heart and how it’s able to pump blood through our entire body and the implications of that function. I made this piece as a representation of how the heart’s work for our body is like that of a finely tuned machine and how its effort to sustain the body is a labor of love.
