Copper Heart by Abby Goodman. Media: Acrylic.

This work is a fun piece that was inspired after a friends wedding, and was created for a solo show I had at a boutique hotel in NYC. I painted a wood panel, and gilded the surface with copper leaf. The heart was then painted on the surface. This work has a raw feeling to it, and has more energy than the imagery would allude at first glance. The copper surface is left untreated so that the copper can age naturally over time, changing in incremental amounts over the years.

Did you know that most guests don’t remember the wedding gift they buy when they pick them from a bigbox retailer?
