Heart, Organ Of Love (Sometimes My Heart Turns Into A Chicken) is a series of layered and pinned together watercolours depicting human hearts, rendered particularly tangible and evanescent by the depth of texture and colour of Krotova’s wet on wet, torn crepe paper pasting. “I like working with materials, which are perishable, which often break and fade during the process of work,” Krotova explains, “even before it’s finished, like ceramics, or paper, because for me they convey the ‘living’ quality to the object to be made in the best way.” But she does not forego the possibility of working with more solid materials, say marble. “Fragile and perishable can be written in any heavy block.”
