Original artwork description:

"Venus" was the Roman and Greek goddess of love. I chose this as the title of this piece as I thought it fitted with the somewhat metaphysical aspect to the series and the expression she has lends itself to an austere yet inviting beauty. An important point to the life of the individual is love as without love one cannot connect with others and form lasting and worthwhile relationships. The blue-green grey that surrounds her face gives off a sense that she is ethereal which ties into both the idea of the individual piece and the series as a whole; the idea of the divine aspect within the individual and how when this is realised there is a synthesis of beauty. An effect I hope all four pieces present when viewed together.
