"Ben Beres consistently surprises me in the ways that he can make me laugh and make me cry. Beres creates a range of works from bold and direct to intricate and convoluted. For me, Your Heart is so wonderful because it is visually bold but the feelings it carries are complicated and intricate. The print is hot pink and punchy, overstated and simple. But its simplicity also gives it honesty and shows raw emotion. The language reminds me of a teenage tantrum yet with a deep and dark emotion behind it. The words seem painstakingly handwritten, not elegantly but heartbreakingly. First it seems inviting, then it brings you to your knees."
