MOHA - MUSEUM OF HEART ART
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......

Ballarina - by Joan Miro i Ferra
Ballarina. 1925. Oil on canvas. 115.5 x 88.5 cm. Galerie Rosengart, Lucerne, Switzerland.
Joan MirÃ³ i FerrÃ (April 20, 1893Â - December 25, 1983; was a Spanish Catalan painter, sculptor, and ceramist born in Barcelona.
The collages, sculptures, tapestries and abstract paintings created by Joan MirÃ³ were bright, fantastical and reminiscent of cave paintings. MirÃ³ 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 MirÃ³'s painting The Farm in 1923). MirÃ³'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.
