I like to think of this piece as on for the looker to interpret. In general, I see this art portraying racial equality intertwined with love. A well-known phrase know by Christians all ove the world is "love your neighbor." this Spirit of love was with the apostles when they preached to the Gentiles, so that those who were not Jewish would have a chance to be know Christ and have eternal life. This Spirit of love was with the abolitionists who fought hard to end slavery. And of course, this Spirit of love was best represented when one man, Jesus Christ, died on a cross, so that life would be given to all people who believed, o matter their shape, color, size, or background. And we as Christian Understand that "we love because he first loved us,? no matter the difference we have with others. This is where I like to look at the colors inside the heart. For me, I see the different ways to love. Orange represents giving, green represents sharing, yellow represents doing something for someone , and so on. There are so many different ways to be loving! To dive deeper, all these colors intertwine with each other randomly, but the big picture shows a lovely heart. Likewise, small acts of love may be random at first, but when they build up overtime, those many acts come together to make one impactful person full of a loving heart. This is my interpretation, but I would love for the look to interprets this piece for themselves as it may mean something greater to them. Each person has their own unique story, and I hope they can resonate with my artwork in their own unique way.
