Title - "Functional Pumping Heart Model". Original drawing in sepia ink and clay pencil on handmade khadi paper, with transfer printed elements including a photo by Vivi-Mari (which is why it's only 'sort of' a self-portrait - I did lots of things to it, but the original photo is hers - I guess that really makes it our first collaboration - another one coming soon!). A symbolic journey through the many byways of the heart. I thought of the old idea of phrenology, assigning mental functions to different areas of the head, and transferred the idea to the assigning emotional functions (and dysfunctions) to areas of the heart. Not for sale online yet, until I hear whether it's been selected for the show (mid Feb), but I'm always willing to entertain offers. Now.. on with the next piece, in between decorating the house ready for Christmas, etc. etc.....
