Artist's description:

This painting talks about the moment when Aphrodite was caught by her husband - compromised, naked, vulnerable and ‘in flagrante’ with her passionate lover Ares, the God of War.

The jilted goldsmith husband reacted in an angry male retaliation, casting a golden net over the pair – trapping them for all to see………

Aphrodite – with of all of her associations with love, femininity, beauty and fecundity – all things female in a creative world is often represented by the colour gold. The bright burnish of this precious metal talks of a quality of light that is warm, radiant and very desirable.

In all her myths, this Goddess of Love is all about the force of attraction and connection; passion and the juiciest forms of love……voluptuous movement, flourishing growth; resonant with the beautiful images of flowers, symbolic of procreation.
