This work depicts Venus, (also known by the Greek name, Aphrodite), the sensual Goddess of love: born from the foam (Aphròs) of the Aegean Sea. She is represented here in a deliberately ethereal way suggestive of a form taking shape from a tumultuous force, like sea water or emerging from paint dripping on a surface.
The referencing image is that of the famous statue of Venus of Milo dating back to 130 BC, attributed to Alexander of Antioch.
Pigmented resin on plexiglass.
