What I like most about this sculpture by Polish-born artist Piotr Uklanski (b. 1968), is the visceral response it elicits, because it does look something like what a real, human heart might, if it was covered with thick layers of dripping encaustic. Untitled (Sacre Coeur), 2015 (Resin on patinated metal stand) is currently part of larger, mostly photographic exhibit by the artist that you can see at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, on Fifth Avenue in NYC.

A three-dimensional art piece that looks as if it were made out of cubes, Shinji Murakami’s 3D-8 Bit series was born from the idea that you could translate the pixelated bumpiness of 8-bit imagery into a three-dimensional form. This creations pushes him to contemplate not only the simplest expression of a subject, but the exact opposite of that process: the discovery of the most important lens through which to perceive the subject.

Happy Valentines Day! I will “celebrate” this day by posting pictures of Heart-Shaped Things!
Here’s a close up of a Heart-Shaped Potato found at the Potato Festival at Sentry Hill Historic House, UK.
Heart Shaped Bacon for Valentine’s Day Breakfast!
Here’s How to Make it!
- You will need 12 slices of bacon to make 12 hearts.
- Preheat oven to 400ºF (200ºC).
- Cut your bacon slices in half.
- Use 2 pieces of the cut in half bacon and shape them into a heart on a sheet pan (make sure this pan has sides so the grease doesn’t get all over your oven!)
- Bake for 18 – 25 minutes (or until done)
- Serve with a heart shaped Egg!
