Born from the waves

2020 - oil on canvas 80 x 80 cm

According to the classic myth Venus was born from the foam of the sea waves, I created a contemporary version of the myth with a Venus that takes shape from the water of the sea and modeled by the waves and the warm sunset light.

This painting is the result of a slow process in which the image evolves slowly bouncing between my imagination and the canvas, for a period of 7 years I went on making changes and retouching, little by little the image was set to focus and shortly after finishing it a collector fell in love with her and take her to his home.

The theme of female beauty and water have become a constant in my artistic production, I will return to these subjects with the next canvases even if I intend to continue to explore the wide world of magical realism.
