Venus de Milo: Becoming
A set of 3 original, encaustic / mixed media pieces created using high quality, artist grade materials.
These were such a joy to make, and quite the journey!
When I started the first one, I had no idea there were 2 more yet to be born. But now that all is said & done, and these 3 pieces have been birthed — they just so happen to tell a story...
The Venus de Milo first becomes aware that she's stuck in her cold, hard marble, but luckily manages to awaken just in time to catch a glimpse of that door to a better life.
She then steps thru the door, and just when she expects everything to be perfect — her oh-so-imperfect-but-comfortable life shatters into a million pieces.
But one day at a time, with all the strength & tenacity she can muster, she manages to put the pieces back together into a newer, more vital version of herself.
It's a story full of hope, strength, tenacity & faith. It's the story of Becoming.
And like it or not, it's the story of the human condition — our human condition!
Each of the three cradled wood panels are 20"w x 24"h and are already mounted on gorgeous 1.5" deep cradled wood panels, giving them a contemporary look.
No framing is necessary. They come ready to hang on your wall, and shipping is free.
