LA Sky with Spinning Hearts by Betye Saar is an elaborately constructed offset lithograph. Irregular sheets of paper are sewn together to form a multi-dimensional surface of a night sky full of human and celestial objects. The artist, a native of Los Angeles, California, is interested in different religions, the occult, voodoo, hoodoo, astrology, the stars, cards, palms, and the future. The red spinning hearts and the silver spinning Saturns balanced by a palm tree and a hand express the meaning of art and its creation for Saar. Her work is intensely spiritual, yet aware and open to the new magic of technology.
