"Change of Heart" is a one of a kind ♥ sculpted from a recycled European beverage can.
I treated the aluminum to bring out its stunning iridescence and then hammered and embossed it with this intricate pattern. Then I precision cut out a heart, in all its imperfect glory and finished by mounting it in a beautiful custom-designed golden frame.
An inscription on the back reads, "Change your life by changing your heart."
Movement is caused by a stiff breeze outdoors.
"Change of Heart"; 2011. Recycled aluminum drink can, mdf backing, acrylic paint, wood frame. Private collection; West Chester, Ohio.
