“Heart” – An EDITION featured artist project @ Simone DeSousa Gallery

“Whenever I start thinking of my love for a person, I am in the habit of immediately drawing radii from my love—from my heart, from the tender nucleus of a personal matter—to monstrously remote points in the universe. Something impels me to measure the consciousness of my love against such unimaginable and incalculable things as the behavior of nebulae.”

~ Vladimir Nabokov, Speak, Memory
