Desiree Brand - "Venus"
W: 320mm x H: 400mm x D: 230mm
This work is unframed
Vineyard Venus's stance, hair and even the stalk-like neck, with added artistic licence is an interpretation of a playful doll that the artist made from some vine sticks. The artist decided to create a venus of more sophisticated aesthetic appeal, portraying a charming feminine aspect of the vine as well as showing the complexity of Mother Nature. The aspect of ambiguity in nature [0xC3A2][0x1][0x1] seemingly a fitting consort of wine [0xC3A2][0x1][0x1] resulted in covering half of the face with vine leaves implying that half of her senses is covered; asleep or unconscious. This is also said of wine, that it is a living substance and that individual bottles have their lunar on and off days.
Desiree likes to explore different media such as oils, acrylics, pastels, cont. and drawing inks, however she always returns to sculpting, her subject mostly being the human form. The artist prefers a slightly idealized naturalistic style when sculpting portraits. Her sculpture medium varies from wood, ceramic, clay cast in cement fondue, mosaic and bronze.
