Jenna Morello: Security Systems

3,000.00

Jenna’s piece is acrylic paint on found wood. It measures 29 inches by 34 inches.

Morello's beautiful illustrative style is on full display in this painting reflecting, quite literally, a caged heart. Is the human heart on display to be viewed from afar and not touched like an animal in a zoo? Is the cage protecting us from seeing what the person is really made of? Maybe we all protect ourselves by not ever allowing another soul to fully touch our own. "Security Systems" is painted on found wood which looks and feels like a fireplace mantle, which is no accident.
