BORN IN TEMPEST. (THE BIRTH OF VENUS)
1987. Canvas, oil
110x80

It is a somewhat untraditional interpretation of the scene of the Birth of Venus. The wide-known classic compositions accentuate some manifested external qualities: beauty of lines and forms. However, esoterically Venus, as Ishtar a Near-Eastern goddess, and Tara a Tibetan Feminine Bodhisattva, takes on another sound and dynamics. Even if we direct our attention to the ancient Greek world not showing its details but only being guided by the role of the Uranian Symbols we can understand that they manifest themselves otherwise and, therefore, show another sound and energy. It is, first of all, an impulse, an inspiration; it is a Tempest; it is a triumphant Exclamation!
