Hearts are a recurring symbol in Mackenzie Thorpe’s art. They represent love, hope, and unity. Thorpe’s art often explores themes of childhood, innocence, and vulnerability. He uses hearts to convey a message of hope and compassion. In the work “Lighting the Way,” the dark blue night is illuminated by the light of a lantern, the warmth of a heart, and the twinkling of stars. The lantern represents hope, the heart represents love, and the stars represent the universe. The painting is a reminder that even in the darkest of times, there is always hope. It is also a celebration of childhood. The young boy in the painting is innocent and vulnerable, but he is also full of hope. He is holding a lantern, which represents his willingness to explore the world and find his way. The heart he pulls represents his love for the world and all its creatures. The stars above him represent the universe full of wonder and possibility. “Lighting the Way” is a beautiful and hopeful artwork that reminds us that there is always hope, even in the darkest of times. It is a celebration of childhood and the power of love.
