‘This is Love!’

by Andrina Andi

“‘This is Love!’ is a cartoon of a heart being violently squeezed by a surgeon’s hand after being ripped out of the chest, clearly in pain yet pronouncing it Love. When missing or feeling unworthy of real love we sometimes mistake pain, or intense feelings born of trauma as caring. Exploration of self through absurdism is the main objective of Andrina’s cartoons, mirth in the face of dark subject matter is the other.”
