2020 - oil on canvas 80 x 80 cm

According to the classic myth Venus was born from the foam of the sea waves,  I refreshed the classic imagery with a contemporary vision with a Venus in the sunset, born from the sea water and shaped by the waves and the colored light of the setting sun

This painting is the result of a slow distillation process that occurred between my imagination and the canvas in a time span of 7 years, soon after I was happy with it a collector fall in love with her and wanted the painting for his home
