Heart

2021/22

Heart is an investigation into younger peoples perspectives of romance and beauty, and how popular culture can influence this. The work is a series of sketches that include a Gene Kelly inspired tap dance, a literal interpretation of “falling in Love” metaphors, a song inspired by 90’s Rom Com quotes, and recreations of romantic paintings from the 1800’s.​​
