wooden hearts

At my job (at Anthropologie's home office) we have an art gallery space that rotates an artist's series every month.  This month is a series by artist Todd Quarles who also happens to be a fellow employee at Urban Outfitters.  I am so in love with these wooden hearts (no pun intended)!  Sadly all the ones I would love to buy (seen above) have already sold.  Some of my most treasured posessions are wooden vases my grandfather made.  The way the artist embraces the unique qualities of wood reminds me of my grandfather's work.  These pieces transport me to a moment in time, creating a deep emotional reaction in me.  I think that is one of the greatest accomplishments an artist can achieve.
