When the Head meets the Heart – 2023

Photographic Collage and fragment of nineteenth century portrait on paper. H31.5 x W21 cm

Matters of the Head and the Heart combine in this collage. Set against the periodic table the combination includes all the essential elements which, when aligned, proffer the best prognosis.

The iconic racehorse Phar Lap’s heart forms the head attire while the forehead is a fragment of the artist’s earlier depiction of Eve’s torso, incorporating the serpent of Lucifer as a central tiara-like symbol of life’s constant temptation.
