The Heart’s Garden
‘Only Tears truly feed The Heart’s Garden’
Tears made of pearls roll down this girl’s cheeks and chest to feed the tree that is growing from her heart. The branches and leaves are made with wire, fabric and gouache paint. For the detailing on the leaves I used a mixture of golden paint and gold powder. The heart has silver embroidery along the sides and brown embroidery follows the veins on the heart.
Vintage textiles hang from her body. Her hair has been embroidered with dark brown and ivory thread.
