Heart Potato Print


Jason Polan made heart potato prints.

He bought a potato and cut a notch on the top of it. Each cross section of the potato was then in the shape of a heart. For each artwork, he would cut a sliver of the potato away, added paint and made a print. The first ones were small hearts. The hearts got bigger until the thickest middle part of the potato and then again got smaller until there was nothing left of the potato.

Each print is unique as he made only one print per cut. The edition size was to be however many the potato would make. This potato made 32. He numbered the prints in order of printing so the first few (1 thru 3) and the last few (30 thru 32) were smaller hearts than the middle ones (15 thru 17). They were printed on Fabriano 4.5″x6.7″ (115x170mm) paper and are all signed and dated (all on the back).

(enter smile here) Makes me love him and his work even more.

  4. Regardless of whether for pleasure or business, Twitter will most
    likely be worth an extra glance. In the finish Twitter is a social network and social means
    interactive communication. First, you examine the type of insurance strategy security itself ‘ do you need an annually insurance strategy security, or do you rather have insurance strategy security
    for only 1 journey. Two of her Tweets are in
    relation to its World Humanitarian Day, and we all’re guessing that there will need to have
    been plenty of people enthusiastic about hearing about saving
    the World (like over 7 million).
