MOHA - MUSEUM OF HEART ART

Updated on February 12, 2016

VISIT MOHA ON VALENTINES DAY...

The symbol of the heart seems to be more and more prevalent in art today. This is probably a very good thing since it is the symbol for love, which is the answer to most of mankind's ills. MOHA is an imaginary museum that I created to house this collection of "love" art. II would like to offer you a heart felt thanks for viewing it......

Heart Art at left is by Veronika.

My Etsy store is HERE.

The Complicated Heart - by G. Thomas Bower




Here is a digital heart painting that is so amazingly complex that the closer you look, the more visual stuff you find. Click on the painting to go see a larger version of it.

Here is a particularly beautiful piece that I found on a free stock photo site. It appeals to me because of the simplicity of design and, of course the beautiful coloration.

Sacrificial Heart Sculpture - by Tim Noble and Sue Webster






LONDON - Gagosian Gallery presents a single sculpture by Tim Noble & Sue Webster, on view through Saturday, 23 February 2008. Sacrificial Heart is a large, rotating sculpture of a bleeding heart studded with hundreds of flashing coloured lights. Here, the archetypal Christian emblem fuses with the classic tattoo of rock n' roll and/biker iconography in a mesmerizing display that pulsates with light. This sculpture is their first three dimensional free-standing sculpture which rotates.









Ballarina - by Joan Miro i Ferra






Ballarina. 1925. Oil on canvas. 115.5 x 88.5 cm. Galerie Rosengart, Lucerne, Switzerland.

Joan Miró i Ferrà (April 20, 1893 - December 25, 1983; was a Spanish Catalan painter, sculptor, and ceramist born in Barcelona.

The collages, sculptures, tapestries and abstract paintings created by Joan Miró were bright, fantastical and reminiscent of cave paintings. Miró is closely associated with both Barcelona and Paris: he was raised in Barcelona and moved to Paris in 1920, where he became acquainted with other young artists and writers, including Pablo Picasso, Ezra Pound and Ernest Hemingway (who bought Miró's painting The Farm in 1923). Miró's first solo exhibit in Paris was in 1925, and by 1930 he was being exhibited in the United States. From then on he worked on paintings, collages, tapestries and ceramic and bronze sculptures. His bold reds, blues and yellows and simple shapes make his work instantly recognizable, and his monumental, abstract sculptures are landmarks in Paris, Chicago, New York and Barcelona.









Heart of Stone - by Christopher Hynes






Christopher Hynes, a man with a love for lost objects who creates what he calls "visual poems." He opens a dialogue of social commentary by using drawers and items that are leftover from construction sites and remodeling jobs, basically any "leftover materials from our throwaway society" as his canvas. His works are thoughfully put together using vintage materials and three dimensional objects. Whether the piece is serious, whimsical or just plain outlandish, they are all beautifully crafted.
