About the work :
Diana Savostaitepainted this artwork of heart in such an expressive and colourful manner to visually emphasize a sense of beating heart (or passion for life). This painting was made as a diptych with 'Heartbeat - 2'
The very first idea of making irregular artworks was triggered in an art exhibition that was held in Thames-Side Studios gallery in 2019. Savostaite saw some paintings that were very large and tall. Then, she certainly had this idea in her mind to experiment more and make something different then she used to.
" My initial idea was to prepare a long piece of canvas and paint a series of paintings on it so it looked something similar to a camera film with different shots. So, I have painted a couple of tall canvases which made me think of making all kinds of shapes. In the beginning I started to make little shaped canvases and really enjoyed it. As the time went, my ideas evolved and I discovered new possibilities of hanging the paintings in unusual places, turning them and connecting them together in different ways. I am still on my way to finding perfect shapes and compositions."- D. Savostaite
