Margarita is a player!

Heart 1
This heart is composed of one deck of playing cards, poker chips, poker dice, and poker buttons. The poker chips outline the heart shape made from the overlapping of cards. A polychromatic use of colors is noted as the mixture of red, white, blue hues, black, and yellow. The intersection of the playing cards with the poker chips (which are both geometric shapes) assist with the definition of the static heart shape. Shallow depth is seen by the shadows the medium places. The distribution of visual weight with a near symmetrical balance is exemplified. The poker buttons and dice are not exactly the same color though their placement is symmetrical. Repetition in the cards and chips are prevalent. The unity in this heart-inspired artwork revolves around my love of playing poker
