Arij Gasiunasen Fine Art, Palm Beach Acquired from the above by the present owner
"The hearts were a prime object. Yes, the shape! It means a lot of things. It doesn't just mean love, it's anatomical, it's all kinds of things. It refers to all kinds of anatomy, too. But it also was a way for me to hang paintings onto something."
This work is in very good condition overall. The sculpture rests securely on the floor. The surface tonal and textural variations are consistent with the artist's working method and choice of medium. There is evidence of surface soiling throughout and scattered surface accretions.
