A renaissance plot and God of beauty and sexuality in a contemporary art piece.
November 3, 2016
The idea is taken from the classic paintings, where Venus is sleeping on the red sofa. Giorgione, Titian, Modigliani depicted lovers as Venuses as the symbols of beauty and sexuality. Red was the color of passion and love.
Depicting nude women was the privilege of male-painters. The time has changed, and in my work i also portrait my beloved, named Max. On canvases he is idolized to God — Mars.
My Mars is laying on the red sofa in soft slippers as a symbol of contemporary sexuality and reminds Venus in her classic pose. The series was started in March 2015, a month, which was named after Mars.
