Love Heart Art
Love heart art was the focus of Mandys work for years She owned a coffee shop/art gallery (Mandys art cafe) in Dunsborough, a popular tourist town of Western Australia and would paint in public out the back. During these years (before the realisation that she needed glasses) her work became simpler and simpler. It stemmed from the idea of art being a message
If you had a message to send to the world - what would you say
What if the pope or the president of america came to you and said that they would relay your message, but you only had one second. What if...you were two middle aged sisters who were drunk one night on a full moon and decided to take up graffiti. So you grab the art supplies that are always just lying around, go out into the streets and then it hits you. What do you say. Tagging is ridiculous (which is why more middle aged people should commit graffitti. They put more thought into it). After much deliberation (and a couple of fish) you decide that there is only one thing you would want to anonomously say - one emotion that you would want to universally share....and the icon of a love heart is a metaphore for it all.
