First Canvas of 2019

“The Machine”

The beating machine of the body, always moving and working until the day we die. In all cultures and across time, the heart stood symbol of the most intense sensations of all our emotions. It keeps working, sometimes mechanically, through though times and hardships, like heartbreaks or loss. It is our mechanism for intuition and gut-feeling as well, and lids up when feeling happy or in love.

This canvas is an ode to the organ of our body, hence also the signature on the back that says “deus ex machina”. This reffers to how we can always find the power and the sacred from within, to have a final say in how we are determining our life.

As part of the Organ Series, the heart could not be missed. The painting is slightly smaller than the canvas of the lungs, yet heavier and more solid.
