the ultimate valentine’s day gift


check out david foox's AWESOME valentine's themed painting of his heart (hand mixed acrylic), on top of an x-ray of his own chest.

this piece  is limited to a very small number of pieces because of the amount of radiation his body has been subjected to in the past year. “i hope i don’t get sick and need any more x-rays, according to my doctor, i am not allowed any more radiation”, says FOOX.

each piece comes framed in a backlit box and exudes a very spooky and personal quality about it. “imagine having your very own heart painted on top of an x-ray of your body,” continues FOOX in talking about his work.

you can view more of FOOX’s work at his website FOOX-U.com


PS: FOOX reports that as soon as he is able to withstand more radiation, he will do a 4th of july series of 8 back x-rays with the spine painted. “america needs a little back bone right about now,” says FOOX.
