For my sister, Alina.
She wanted a portrait that captured her lungs as they are very significant for her (breathing problems throughout her life) and a heart expressed symbolically rather than anatomically – I instantly knew what she wanted.
I also found it significant to highlight the tattoo in her left arm, and decided to call this portrait using those words.
