Venus no.1.

72x48 inches.
Acrylic painting on board.

The goddess of peace, love and harmony.

These mixed media paintings are intended to work directly on the senses provoking thoughts, memories, moods and atmospheres; they engage the emotions and hopefully stimulate deep feelings within the viewer.

Some of the paintings lend themselves to be comtemplative objects (like religious icons, moslem prayer mats, buddhist or hindu mandalas or church stained-glass windows). Tony paints round the edges of the canvas to emphasise the idea of a sacred object; something he has done since the 1960's.

I used a lot of net curtains mixed with paint, glue and plaster for the texture of this work.
