Artwork information "Heart sketch III"

Silviya’s new body of work depicts portraits of our emotions and feelings i.e. a portrait of human hearts.  The heart is a living symbol; it is an essential to life as the sun is to our solar system.   Among the first sounds experienced in the womb are the internally, resounding rhythms of the mother's heart.  The heart's physical centrality to our existence has its correspondence in our emotions - variable heart-beats measuring out our feelings of affection, desire and delight, as well as pounding out our rages, fears and vulnerabilities.  In Ancient Egypt the hieroglyphic heart shaped as a vase, was the storehouse of memory and truth, the center of the personality, of understanding, as well as creative imagination.  The heart shares with the lotus flower and the rose the qualities of the hidden, enfolded center beneath the outer surface of things, the secret locked away; when we want to 'let someone in', we must give them 'the key'.  The heart, like the sun, is the central source of life, the seat of power, courage and strength.  The heart can be pierced and melted by the darts of Eros as well as broken by love's refusal. 

'I love you with all my heart'.
