Historical Description

Keith Haring Heart of Heads, 1989 uniquely reveals two humanoid forms conjoined in a heart shape knot, connecting where heads would normally reside. The figures in this artwork boldly call to your attention as their bodies create an expressive gesture, lines of movement illustrating the joy that bursts forth in a contagious manner. Their bodies are rendered in a bright red in the middle of the composition, the necks of the two figures extended towards the center, allowing the heart shape form to take command as the center of the composition. Bold black action lines are accentuated in the forms of curves and wiggles above their heads, vibrating with the energy the two figures as they dance on the polka dot covered ground. Haring’s uncomplicated style allows the work to speak for itself, filling the space with unbridled love and acceptance. The works petite size, small edition size, and subject matter regarding love make this an intimate work that is captivating to the eye.

Keith Haring Untitled (Head of Hearts), 1989 is a silkscreen on canvas that is from the numbered edition of 60.
