Melissa Coote's focus on painting the sensitive sites on the human body has long allowed her to make images of undoubted symbolic power. In the new body of works, Coote turns her attention to the most symbolic of all body parts - the heart. Paintings, bronze sculptures and prints reveal the heart stripped of sentimental symbolism, but Coote gives us back the heart as a prosaic object, one that gains a deeper potency and authority because of her honesty.
