Artist's description:

This work has been inspired by the previous work “Circus Creatures: Venus Flys Trap”, in the work the Artist refers to “Venus” the Roman Classical Goddess of Love and Beauty. The Artist found a similar named painting “Toilet of Venus” or “The Rockeby Venus” by the Spanish Artist, Diego Velazquez (1599-1660) which depicts a nude painting Venus with Cupid holding a mirror. (see last image)

“Toilet of Venus” sounds similar to the perfume or cologne “Eau de Toilet”, and the Artist has used this for inspiration for Spray Can series of works. The Artist has rotated the Spray Can in the Landscape from in keeping with “Toilet of Venus” painting and coloured the Spray Can in skin tone colours of “Venus” with Pink Lettering and Spray to suggest Pink Lipstick of “Venus”. The Label of the Spray Can colour is Silver to represent the Silver reflective qualities of the "Mirror"

“Vincent da Vinci’s Signature Spray” refers to his Brand name, similar to other Celebrities Branded merchandise of Perfume or Cologne range of products, such as “Signature” by Celine Dion or Christina Aguilera. The Artist is suggesting that the “Signature” of the Artist, is just as important as the Product itself. One aspect of Conceptual Art, is where the Artist explores his Identity, and the “Signature” of an Artist, is part of his identity.
