With the “Heart Series”, I updated a traditional symbol to increase its relevancy in the present time. I approached the heart as both an anatomical organ that supports the life force and as an icon representing the center of feelings and personality. My goal was to not sentimentalize the heart symbol and portray the typical emotions that it tends to represent in a traditional way -- but to use it as a vehicle to express less conventional emotions in a more contemporary manner.
