In my painting, "Heart Harvesting," I depict a woman adorned with a striking blue rabbit hat, her chest bearing a conspicuous square void where her heart should be. She stands atop what appears to be a garden, but instead of lush greenery, it is a bustling cityscape filled with the electronic devices that tether us to the vast realm of the internet. Her distinctive feature lies in her four eyes, a reflection of the overwhelming amount of information and imagery she encounters.

Every night, she is compelled to enter this digital landscape, traversing through screens, observing, feeling, commenting, liking, and sometimes shedding tears as images flood her consciousness. Hours slip away, and with each passing night, a part of her is invested, her heart gradually unraveling until it dissolves entirely when she disconnects and attempts to sleep.

The following morning, she awakens and silently journeys to her heart garden to harvest the heart of the new day, fully aware that by day's end, it will have withered away once more. She sadly resigns herself to this cyclical fate, even as her four eyes may feel inadequate to take in everything the night has shown her.

This painting serves as a poignant reflection on the modern human experience, where the allure of the digital world often disconnects us from our own hearts and the physical world around us. It is a symbolic representation of the emotional toll exacted by our constant immersion in the online realm, reminding us to balance our digital and real-life interactions and to cherish the authenticity of the human experience
