Bart Hess has created an unusual love composition in his artwork ‘Heart to Mouth.’ The video features a couple with giant alienesque rubber heads seemingly making out or delusively expressing intense emotions towards each other.

The composition is quite odd and perfectly parallel to the artist’s overall vision and the big name artists he collaborates with professionally, such as Lady Gaga, Palais de Tokyo, Lucy McRae and Nick Knight.

Hess works closely with the combination of material studies, animation and photography. This particular work is a great example of his body of work.

The distinctly pastel rubber and stands out vibrantly with the monstrous silver fake nails. The final work creates an alien picture frame that is absurdly interesting.
