Aphrodite: Goddess of Love & Beauty, Creative Woman & Lover
Immortalized by Botticelli in ''The Birth of Venus", Aphrodite is the archetype of the Alchemical Goddess for the magic of transformation providing the energy field of creativity. An important aspect being that the creative process is generated by passion, an intense involvement to bring something into being. Like a lover, an artist creates with an intense passion igniting all senses in a new painting, a new sculpture, or a new musical composition. To love and be loved in return is the greatest of total bliss and brings the power of transformation and creativity. ''Of Friendship'': ''To love, and to be loved, is the greatest happiness of existence.'' - Sydney Smith, in Lady Holland's Memoir (1855)
Join me into my world of fantasy where Greek Mythology and the Natural World intertwine, a fusion of images created to bring harmony and celebrate the beauty of our natural world through mythology. The series Beyond Mythology, the Myths of Nature will be showcased from 11 until 26 June 2022 in the most suitable venue where Art meets Nature at Villa Carlotta in Lake Como, whose cultural heritage is unique for its fusion of history, art and nature to Love Art is to Love Nature.
The exhibition is organized by Tablinum Cultural Management in Bellagio, whose innovative strategies are designed to combine traditional artistic knowledge with the complexity of the changes taking place in today’s cultural world, together with the support of the Canadian Council for the Arts, Canada’s public art funder, which contributes to the vibrancy of creative and diverse arts and literary scene - Bringing Arts to Life - through grants to Canadian artists & arts organizations.
