looking around – heart paintings

This week we have been much inspired by artist Melissa Coote’s  heart paintings and bronze hearts.

Melissa Coote, hearts

“This arresting painting presents as its subject the most vital of all our organs, the heart. How strange and wonderful to behold the heart as if it were some kind of topographical landscape. We look down upon it as if it were an atoll isolated in the darkest sea. The undulations and ravines of its muscularity seem formed by the earth itself over thousands of years.”
