Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas and Wood.

My recent paintings are about life of Mars and Venus. I compare renaissance and contemporary heroes, traditional plots of classic oil paintings and up-to-day situations, where Mars is my beloved Max, I am the Venus, his wife.

This is the second painting of me in a role of Venus. The model is looking into the mirror, therefor the work is traditionally called ‘The Toilet of Venus’. My Venus admires herself and her body. The another name of the work is Annunciation, where the model, like Virgin Mary, is learning about her pregnancy and holding a book (sketchbook in life) in the hands. In the painted version the glass with water was added as the symbol of pure beauty (as the vase for a flower in the Renaissance painting).
