I hope to convey several messages with this mixed media piece. First, the title of the piece is a reminder that Love is possible for everyone and anyone. The focal point of this assemblage, a large paper collage heart has the message "love you" written over and over again. Materials used are an interesting bunch of imperfect, fragmented and reclaimed objects such as cardboard, wire, nails, broken coat hangers and metal scraps. The imperfect found objects carefully linked together symbolize that there is always the possibility of coming together in a new way to find completeness, wholeness and even Love.
The use of a black and white background to offset the beautiful rusted patinas of the found objects was chosen for a reason. This composition is sustainable and created from recycled materials as a way to celebrate being an EcoFriendly artist. Small green painted hearts are interspersed throughout the piece surrounding the center heart.
