The myth of Venus as the goddess of love and sexuality is well integrated into the latest masterwork by Richard MacDonald - Venus, 2019. Venus stands with both strength and grace, expressing soft waves through her body language, ideal for the goddess born from sea foam. Her divine form has been explored by artists from Botticelli to Matisse, always portraying her sensitivity and elegance. We see MacDonald expertly convey these themes through Venuss soft gesture and serene facial expression, with effortless appearance. The beautiful implied movement in this artwork allows us to see Venus as though she is still sea foam bouncing off of the ocean waves.
