Resilient Heart

mixed media (wood, metal, marble, crystals)

20" tall x 18" wide x 18" deep

As a follow-up to my piece created for the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation's "Heart of San Francisco" fundraiser in 2020, this version sought to blow up the format a bit more. A wooden heart enhanced with paper mache and encrusted with Swarovski crystals and vintage bed springs is mounted on a marble and wood pedestal.

Created during the COVID pandemic shutdown, I wanted this piece to reflect the resilience of a wounded heart during a forced period of self-reflection.

And, of course, it sparkles too.

A lot.
