In Greek mythology, a Charis (/ˈkeɪrɪs/; Greek: Χάρις, pronounced [kʰáris]) or Grace is one of three or more minor goddesses of charm, beauty, nature, human creativity, and fertility, together known as the Charites /ˈkærᵻtiːz/ (Χάριτες [kʰáritɛːs]) or Graces. The usual list, from youngest to oldest is Aglaea ("Splendor"), Euphrosyne ("Mirth"), and Thalia ("Good Cheer"). In Roman mythology they were known as the Gratiae, the "Graces". In some variants, Charis was one of the Graces and was not the singular form of their name. The Charites were usually considered the daughters of Zeus and Eurynome, though they were also said to be daughters of Dionysus and Aphrodite or of Helios and the naiad Aegle. Other possible names of their mother by Zeus are Eurydome, Eurymedousa, and Euanthe. Homer wrote that they were part of the retinue of Aphrodite. The Charites were also associated with the Greek underworld and the Eleusinian Mysteries. An art topic depicted in dozens of paintings and sculptures, including: Primavera (Botticelli), a 15th-century painting by Botticelli The Three Graces (Raphael), a 16th-century painting by Raphael The Three Graces (Rubens), a 17th-century painting by Rubens The Three Graces (sculpture), a 19th-century neoclassical sculpture by Antonio Canova...

Artist Vlad Tasoff is a master at blending the worlds of the fantastical and the real to create dynamic paintings that celebrate the essence of human spirit. His works offer a unique brand of organic surrealism charged with delicate intimations, traces and shadows. Overlapping, semi-translucent veils of rich, frosted pastel figuration sketch out the female body in synthesis with the vegetal and geographic features of mysterious terrain. Adopting the characteristically surrealist trope of masquerade as metaphor, Tasoff’ s dynamic use of hybrid female forms greet the viewer during precious instants of sensual slumber and spiritual discovery. Specific archetypes such as angels, enchantress and deities appear to fise seamlessly into their surroundings. Tropical oases, glacial slopes and dewy meadows emerge amidst illusions to Western and Oriental culture, fashioning mystical landscapes ripe with the beguiling fruit of forms, symbols and signs…
