“Black Heart” original acrylic painting.
“Black Heart” is inspired by the notion that the always cheerful shown symbol of the heart can have a sad connotation. Showing the sadness of the heart, or the broken heart, the heart with dark intentions creates a juxtaposition between the cheerful symbol and it’s display here. The background is colorful to symbolize the “normal” view of this symbol with the heart being raised through acrylic medium and being irregular and black as contrast. This is also to emphasize that one cannot see another’s intentions, or their sadness if hidden inside.
