Love Heart Art
This series of work was inspired by thinking "what message do I want to send to the world"
Its about thinking big
and what better icon represents the one emotion that you would want to universally share a love heart is a metaphore for it all
Love heart art was the focus of my work for years.
I 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.
If you had a message to send to the world - what would you say
This is a wonderful question to ask yourself before you create some art -
Its the question we asked ourselves one night on a full moon when my sister and I decided to take up graffiti. We grabbed the art supplies that are always just lying around, went out into the streets and then it hit us....What do you say? We think tagging is ridiculous (which is why more middle aged people should commit graffitti.)
So after much deliberation (and a couple of fish) we decided that there is only one thing we wanted to anonomously say - one emotion to universally share .....(and thats how we started all those love hearts appearing around Dunsborough)
