julie on the installation…

love letter“This piece represents the sacred meaning of my 17-year relationship with my former husband. The anatomical heart with a vase-like open top is combined with the shape of a bleeding heart flower, symbolizing compassion and emotional freedom. Ginkgo leaf also takes on part of the heart structure, symbolizing ancient wisdom. There’s even a hint of linden leaf, symbolizing self love and the balancing of the male/female aspects. The pain and suffering of the disintegration of the relationship is transformed by the expression of love repeatedly found in the love notes written by David. They were photocopied onto parchment paper and formed into doves, symbols of love and peace.”
