Heart Drawing
Heart Drawing
Ink on bristol
11 x 14"

Thousands of hearts accumulate to create shapes that are loosely based on constellation or galaxy formations. Each heart represents lost or misplaced affection. Unrequited love joins collectively to create an optimistic (imaginary) home for heartbreak; but these hearts do not break, they celebrate the act of projecting affection and trivialize the need for reciprocity. The repetitive act of drawing comes from adolescent ritual. Drawing hearts, or writing a name over and over replaces the need for actual affection. This cult ritual performed in the hope of receiving affection from others satisfies romantic desires and replaces human contact.
