A Misplaced Heart

Art by Lily Zhao ’18


Artist’s Statement: Sometimes, a heightened awareness of the concrete events that take place in life reveals a disturbing possibility that the colors one’s life is painted with may not completely fulfill one’s capacity for variation and intensity, or that, in some way or another, a mismatch exists between capacity and content such that blocks and lines do not match up. The key, perhaps, is to find some artistic value or space for satisfaction within the dissonance, so as not to fall into the darkness of despair.
