This is a heartwarming collection of one hundred art pieces, each forming the shape of a heart. When a person falls in love, the universe - and everything in it - comes vividly alive. It happened to San Francisco artist Page Hodel when she found the love of her life, Madalene Rodriguez. She expressed her devotion in an unusual way: Early every Monday morning, Page would create a heart for Madalene and leave it for her to discover somewhere near her front door. Tragically, Madalene died of ovarian cancer less than a year after she and Page met. But Page's love goes on, beautifully symbolized in the hearts she continues to create from a plentitude of objects. Here are photographs of one hundred of Page's hearts for Madalene, fashioned from a magical, surprising diversity of materials: acorns and asparagus; berries, buttons and bungee cord; cardboard, clothespins, corks and candy corn. True love embraces the world and Page's art is testimony to its enduring faith.
Page Hodel, a San Francisco Bay native, is an internationally renowned DJ and nightclub promoter. As a DJ, she has been booked at major dance venues in San Francisco as well as clubs in New York, Los Angeles, Seattle and Paris.
