Experimenting with the heart

Today in the studio: A new sketch, ‘Confidential Heart’

I’m experimenting with making some drawings of the internal – the heart to be specific – using a new text stamp I’ve got:  ‘Private & Confidential’.

I’m not sure I’ve got it quite right yet as it’s rather abstract & may need to be large scale as opposed to actual scale for the form to be more obvious…. thoughts welcome!

  1. Very clever, I love how you’ve lined up the arteries and veins with where they should be.

    • Thanks Tabish – I’m glad you could see the heart in the image, I spent so much time with my face pressed up close to the paper that I wasn’t sure if it was really there or just in my mind!
      Might make a 3d version soon…

    Brilliant work again Nicola. How you manage to make art from such abstract ideas and materials constantly blows me away. And the relationship between the heart being such a very personal thing and the stamp being “Private and Confidential”, very cunning!

what do you think....?
