Paphos Venus


Paphos Venus Acrylic on canvas

A/C work-in-progress May 2015

The contemporary nude:  a preoccupation with the physical, a design of the aesthetic. Polarity of design, opposites attract. The finer virtues of an eternal motif. By design, for design, in design.

The pose and the form go on. No excuses, no meretricious virtues, no surreptitious meanings.
Just is.

It still forms the backbone of my journey, the metaphor of choice. In it I weave my allegories.
