Heart and Brain Drawings

The famous "tug of war" between the two.  They are called-upon, when it comes to making difficult decision, involving emotions.
German Artist Evelyn Maria Lorenz names her work "a heART project". 

We have all been in that situation when a part of us tells us to do one thing and another, the opposite.   In this scenario, the heart represents a more compassionate approach, whilst the brain usually plays a more stern and analytical part. 

It fascinates me how we have the need to give differing thoughts in our mind, a physical manifestation; to be able to examine opposing points of view, or feelings towards something, or someone. 

The brain and the heart are one famous example; the other couple are: the angel and the demon.   They are imagined as sitting on either shoulder of the person struggling with a dilemma and whispering their suggestions in their ear. Us humans, really are an odd lot.

Enjoy the start to a new week and these ink, black and white drawings (I gave them some titles).  Take care.

Ps. I gave the images some titles.
